Ruth was not only the greatest player in the history of the game of baseball, but he was also a spirted, likeable, outsized character who arrived always at the right moment. Babe Ruth was destined for fame starting from his days as a young ball player, then next by getting attention as a result of his remarkable pitching, and finally by stunning fans as a home run hitter.

I have many words I would like to say to him, like having a great team if he would’ve just tried you out once.
