1935: Babe Ruth hit # 714


Babe Ruth left baseball in style, on this day in 1935:
On May 25, 1935, at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Babe Ruth hits his 714th home run, a record for career home runs that would stand for almost 40 years.  This was one of Ruth’s last games, and the last home run of his career.   Ruth went four for four on the day, hitting three home runs and driving in six runs.
Ruth had been sold to the Boston Braves the year before and retired shortly after this home run.  He died in 1948 from cancer.
