Babe Ruth was born on this day in 1895


We say happy birthday to the Babe up in baseball heaven.

George Herman Ruth was born on this day in 1895.   We know him as "Babe", "The Great Bambino", "The Sultan of Swat" and the man who hit 714 career home runs.


Ruth was the greatest professional athlete of the 20th century. He saved baseball in the 1920's after the White Sox World Series scandal. It was Ruth and his majestic homeruns that put people in the seats.


He set the season home run record in 1927.  Maris broke it in 1961 with 61.  


He set the all time record home run record, a mark that stood until Aaron passed him in 1974.   

His records were broken but the legend of the Babe lives on:
