“Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.”


Babe Ruth – TRANSCEND Media Service

Over the course of his career, Babe Ruth broke baseball’s most important slugging records including most years leading a league in home runs, most total bases in a season, and highest slugging percentage for a season. In all, Ruth hit 714 home runs—a mark that stood until 1974. Ruth was born on 6 Feb 1895 and was raised in a poor waterfront neighborhood in Baltimore, where his parents owned a tavern. Ruth was one of eight children born to the couple, and one of only two who survived infancy.
