The Babe Bows Out: Behind Nat Fein's Photo Of Babe Ruth | 100 Photos | TIME
The foundation of the NY Yankees franchise is the Babe and the Stadium his enormity caused to be built. It stood for eight decades and hosted most of the greatest moments in MLB history. And the avarice, satanic Steinbrenners tore it down so that they could erect a monument to themselves with soft seat cushions. May GS burn in Hell with the heat of 10 million suns.
He's larger then life he made the game in the 1920s important and it kept growing to what we have today only problem is the bums today are greedy they forgot why they play the game and it's not for the love of the game.
During his career, that came up a lot. He was a favorite among Black fans, at least partly because many people thought he was actually a Black man "passing" for white. But there's a picture of him and his father tending bar at his father's saloon, and they look so much alike they could have been brothers.
Dave - And we suspect you are a troll. Who never saved 100 people from a fire. He probably met more kids in the hospital than you have met in your whole life. Why do you have to be like that. He was an inspiration for many and he gave to charity. So why belittle the man and everyone who liked him.
+Erix7810, I had been through little league and high school baseball before that movie came out and Babe Ruth was a god to us kids. He was already mythical and superhuman. I grew up in rural Indiana too, not Yonkers or Queens New York, where it would be common for kids to be Yankees fans. The Sandlot Merely capitalized on what was already there. That movie had that effect because it was tapping into something that was our common experience with sports legends.
There is a story that connie mack invited babe to come an stay in Worcester Massachusetts on off season an babe agreed. They drank at the vernon its a old prohibition bar, the bar recently closed down such a shame we losing history.
Babe in his autobiography said the thing he was most proud of was that he had met more kids than anyone on Earth! Think of the impact of that statement. He was the first superstar in sports as far as I could tell. When he retired the closest to him in Homers had less than 1/2 of what he had. He stayed true to those from St Mary's orphanage who helped this "incorigible" young man and developed his love for baseball. Yes there is a God and somehow someway the Babe had an invisible halo around his head on the field. For me, he was larger than life - a fairy tale - a pleasant dream - a champion
This picture and the one taken on July 4th 1939 at Lou Gehrig Day where Babe embraces The Iron Horse are two of the most iconic baseball photos ever. The Bambino and The Iron Horse two all time greats !!!
one of my dear friends was on the field that day honoring The Babe, Hall of Famer Joe Sewell. i met Mr. Sewell a few years before he passed and became close friends. He was standing on the baselines with the other former players. He was team mates of the Babe for 3 years before he retired in 1933, then remained with the team for a year or so as a coach. He told me that it was terrible seeing Babe like that and that everyone was crying, but trying to hide it from Babe
You Tube it isnt about breaking records!!!!! Its about the sport all together! Babe Ruth changed the entire game to what it is today he is the reason why the home run is what it is today he is a legendary icon just like Jackie Robinson.
ok that doesn't garantee any black people would have been able to break records i'm not saying they can't look at Jackie Robinson a well renowned african american base ball player. You can't deny someones achievement just because of some racist rule Babe Ruth was a legend to many and you can't deny is special talent.
