“Charlie was a tremendous left-handed hitter who was also able to bunt, steal a hundred bases a year, and cover center field as well as anyone before him or since…he was like Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth and Tris Speaker rolled into one.” -Buck O’Neil; "If Satch and I were pitching on the same team, we 'd clinch the pennant by the fourth of July and go fishing until World Series time." -Dizzy Dean; “One Time he hit a line drive right past my ear. I turned around and saw the ball hit him sliding into second.” -Satchel Paige. And that was just the beginning. As you can so obviously see people like Dizzy Dean, Buck O’Neil, and Satchel Paige have said some pretty outstanding quotes, are they true?

In order for Babe to be signed into the major leagues, he had to have a guardian sign off on it. Soon, Jack Dunn became Babe Ruth’s new guardian. Though Babe led the Boston Red Sox to three championships, it wasn’t until 1927 while playing for the Yankees where Babe hit a staggering 60 homeruns in a single season - a record that stood untouched for 34 years. Becoming famous didn’t happen overnight for Babe Ruth. It took him from the time he was born, to the time he hit 60 home runs, to become famous.
The integration of major-league baseball proceeded without critical incident. Though Robinson was scorned by some of his teammates, was harassed by enemy bench jockeys, and received a great number of fastballs close to his head; he faithfully abided by his promise to Rickey to turn the other cheek. Even when veteran outfielder Enos Slaughter of the Cardinals appeared to deliberately try to clip him with his spikes in an August 20 game at Ebbets Field, Jackie didn 't retaliate. In fact, baseball 's experiment was a huge success. Despite the concerns of the owners, integration proved to be a financial windfall for Major League Baseball.

I mean, who else is going to make their 100th career homerun a grand-slam and pimp the hell out of it? And then hit another grand-slam a couple games later. No one except Bryce Harper, that’s who.

And if you start your argument against Bryce Harper saying “baseball isn’t supposed to be fun…” then your argument is over, because you’re old and forgot this is a child’s
‘’Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world.’’ These words, spoken by the great Babe Ruth, show that his love for the game of Baseball was incredible and nobody will ever love baseball as much as he did.

Babe used a 52 ounce bat, but today baseball players use bats that are only about 32-34 ounces (Match 33).
