Considering that he hit more home runs than everyone in MLB history, except Barry Bonds, it’s not surprising that Henry Aaron (755) hit back-to-back long balls in the same game more than two dozen times. 

Following is a list of games in which Hank knocked one out of the park two times in consecutive at bats:
