George Herman “Babe” Ruth (1895-1948)
Babe Ruth was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He excelled as both a pitcher and a hitter; however, it was as a batter that he achieved his greatest fame. His records include 2,056 career bases on balls and 72 games where he hit two or more home runs. His lifetime batting average was .342. Ruth attracted so many fans to Yankee Stadium, which opened in 1923, that it was nicknamed “The House That Ruth Built.”
