About Babe Ruth

American baseball prodigy, Babe Ruth, was born George Herman Ruth, on February 6, 1895 in Baltimore, Maryland. His parents had eight children, out of which just 2 survived into adulthood, George and his sister, Marnie. His father, George Sr., owned a tavern and due to the long hours spent there by both parents, Babe had an undisciplined childhood, resulting in his bunking school, engaging in small time street crimes, and cultivating bad habits such as tobacco addiction and alcoholism. When corporal punishment did not seem to have any effect on the rebellious lad, Babe's father sent him to the St. Mary's industrial school for boys, managed by Catholic brothers. While there, a stern brother, Matthias, had a strong influence on Babe and introduced him to baseball, changing his life forever. Following a few years of playing for the school team, in 1914, Matthias introduced Babe to Jack Dunn, owner and manager of the Baltimore Orioles, resulting in Babe getting signed into the team. On April 22, 1914, Babe had his first professional debut garnering a 6-0 victory over the Buffalo Bisons. Later, due to financial constraints faced by the Orioles, Babe was sold along with two team mates to the Boston Red Sox. By 1917, Babes expertise as both a hitter and a pitcher were recognized and he propelled the Red Sox trough the World Series, culminating in a match with the Chicago Cubs. Cost considerations again resulted in Babe being sold to the New York Yankees. With the Yankees, Babe displayed scintillating prowess and was credited with gathering a packed audience in any game he played. Contrary to the discipline he showed during a match, off the field he was still an alcoholic, womanizer, and a reckless driver. His speech was laden with expletives and he was famous for his foul temper. However, he won peoples hearts by his charitable nature, donating money towards the upkeep of underprivileged children and sometimes spending hours signing autographs for his fans. On August 16, 1948, Babe, succumbed to the ravages of cancer. Around 10,000 people attended the funeral of the man considered one of the greatest baseball players in the world.
