Babe Ruth Newsbeat
Thursday, August 25, 2016
Time to break out the hyperbole:
Still, you have to get off to a pretty good start to have anyone comparing you to Babe Ruth after 21 games.

Arizona Republican, August 16, 1916:
Add that to the list of early MLB games I’d give a significant body part to be able to watch: Babe Ruth and Walter Johnson trading zeroes for 13 innings.
Also in the news 100 years ago today: A fan sues the St. Louis Browns for $15,000, claiming he was wrongly accused of stealing a ball that was batted into the stands.

Toledo News-Bee, July 5, 1916:
Man, the Red Sox must really be getting desperate if they’re thinking about using a pitcher in the outfield.

Pittsburgh Press, June 13, 1916:
Man, it’s too bad pitchers only make 38-40 starts per year. I guess we’ll never see what Ruth could do if he got 500 at bats. He could hit 15 or 20 home runs in a season!

This is a story many here have heard before but this article has the first video I’ve seen of it.
Monday, May 02, 2016
Get a fantastic look at what Baker Bowl looked like in the 1930s. This video captures the Babe in his next-to-last game in the major leagues, as the Braves take on the Phillies in Philadelphia. Get a load of the scoreboard with the home team listed as batting first, and that’s Jimmie Wilson bouncing around the bases with a home run.
The Babe would retire two days later, frustrated at being lied to by the owner of the Braves. Emil Fuchs was broke and unable to pay rent at Braves Field, and within a few weeks he would sell the Braves.
