At the beginning of spring training one of the players said “Look at Dunnie and his new babe.” The name stuck with him and from that point forward he was called Babe instead of George (Ruth’s). While playing with the Ravens he performed very well leading to him being sold to the Major League team the Boston RedSoxs. Even though Babe is known for his hitting back in the Majors, he started out as a pitcher. Babe won his major league debut in July of 1914.

The infield has even less time to react when facing a slap hitter. Slap hitting allows the batter to move towards the ball while they are hitting. This allows the batter to overcome their resting inertia before the ball is in play. Slap hitters reach speeds up to 19 mph and can reach first base in 2.66 seconds. This means that if a 3rd baseman takes more than 1.5 seconds to field a ball it becomes virtually impossible to throw the runner out because she would have to release the ball at 100 mph.
