Babe Ruth’s daughter takes in Diamondbacks

The SS Sultana of Swat...what a disaster.

The daughter of Babe Ruth loves the Diamondbacks—but does not have similar feelings for the New York Yankees, the team her father led to four World Series championships.

“No, indeed,” said Julia Ruth Stevens, 95, who was at the Diamondbacks’ opening game Friday at Chase Field. “I haven’t been a Yankee fan for years now.

“It’s the Diamondbacks here, and when I go home I pull for the Red Sox (the team that sold Ruth to the Yankees) in the other league.”
