25 Best Baseball Nicknames in History | MLB.com

No. 1: Babe Ruth (George Ruth)
What if he had gone by George Ruth? It’s hard to even imagine. He was called Babe as a young player when he was all naiveté—he was like a babe in the woods. Over the years, he was called many other things—“Bambino,” “The Sultan of Swat,” “The Big Bam” and “Jidge”—but at heart, he was always Babe, and 100 years after he began, everyone still knows him that way.
