Happy Birthday George!

Wishing a Happy 121st to the greatest of them all, George Herman “Babe” Ruth! (Feb 6, 1895-Aug 16, 1948)

Ruth crushing one of his 714 career home runs

Little needs to be said about this titan of the game. From his early career as an ace pitcher in Boston to his fame as the Sultan of Swat in New York, to this day, 68 years after his death at the age of 53, the Babe still remains an iconic and righteously glorified figure of our national pastime.

He was, and is, the biggest star of the game. When people think of baseball, even to those who aren’t fans of the game, the name Babe Ruth is often the first thing that comes to mind. Now THAT is leaving a legacy!

One of my favorite photos. Babe chatting with Shoeless Joe Jackson, whom he said he copied his swing from. To be a fly on the wall during this conversation…

Cheers champ!
