    Ruth, Babe George Herman 'Babe' Ruth, b. Baltimore, Md. , Feb. 6, 1895, d. Aug. 16, 1948, was one of professional baseball's greatest sluggers and probably the best-known player of the 1920 s and early 1930 s.

He teamed with Lou Gehrig to form what became the greatest one-two hitting punch in baseball and wa...

The Red Sox fans boo as Roger begins to toss his warm-up pitches off to the side. He is getting older, but his fastball still h...
