The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aaron's autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner.
Aaron broke Babe Ruth's home run record on April 8, 1974, at old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. He finished his career with 755 homers, a record passed by Barry Bonds, who finished with 762.
Braves president John Schuerholz said the anniversary "deserves a season-long celebration."
Aaron celebrated his 80th birthday on Feb. 5.
