Babe Ruth Autograph

Babe Ruth, born George Herman Ruth Jr., was a legendary professional baseball player who is considered one of the greatest of all time. Ruth was born in Baltimore in 1895, and grew up as a delinquent child who was essentially abandoned by his parents. At the age of seven, Ruth was sent to St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys, where he developed his love of baseball. A young Brother Matthias acted as a father figure and encouraged Ruth to play baseball, which he did with great passion and skill. More about Babe Ruth

Ruth began his professional baseball career in 1914, when he was signed as a pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles. He quickly caught the attention of the Boston Red Sox, and in 1918, he was sold to the team. It was with the Red Sox that Ruth really made his mark as a hitter, hitting a then-record 29 home runs in the 1919 season. However, Ruth's contract negotiations with the Red Sox fell apart, and in 1920, he was sold to the New York Yankees. It was with the Yankees that Ruth truly became a legend, leading the team to four straight World Series championships and hitting a record-breaking 60 home runs in the 1927 season.

Ruth's baseball career spanned over 20 years, during which he set numerous records and earned numerous awards and accolades. He retired in 1935 with a career batting average of .342 and a staggering 714 home runs, a record that stood for decades. Ruth's impact on baseball cannot be overstated, both in terms of his skills as a player and his larger-than-life personality. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936 and remains a beloved figure in baseball history to this day. Read even more about Babe Ruth at Wikipedia
