MORE INFO ON BABE RUTH: Born George Herman Ruth Jr., Babe Ruth’s impact on the sport of baseball and his legacy are still felt to this day.
His early career started with the Boston Red Sox, where he pitched and played in the outfield. Back in 1918, he led the league with 11 home runs, and then set a new record with 29 home runs the following year.
But it was when Ruth was traded to the New York Yankees in 1920 that he truly became a legend.
Ruth also known as the “Sultan of Swat” for his incredible power at the plate, hit 54 home runs in 1920, breaking his own record, and then followed it up with 59 home runs in 1921. In 1923, the Yankees opened their new stadium, which was dubbed “The House that Ruth Built” in his honor.
Many attribute Ruth’s success on the field for popularizing baseball and turning it into a national pastime. He also helped to revolutionize the game, introducing the concept of the “home run or nothing” approach to hitting, which is still prevalent in today’s game.
Ruth also had several accolades including winning the American League MVP award in 1923, and being a seven-time World Series champion, helping to lead the Yankees to victory in 1923, 1927, 1928, 1932, and 1936.
When Babe Ruth retired from baseball in 1935, he had a career batting average of .342, 714 home runs, and 2,213 runs batted in, all of which were records at the time.
