BABE RUTH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Like the man whose life it honored, Babe Ruth’s funeral was gigantic. “The Babe is no longer breathing, but the fans will always talk about him,” wrote Hy Hurwitz in The Boston Globe. “Talk about him because of his run-in, suspension and fine by the late Miller Huggins, only half of Ruth’s size, but a man who made it possible for Ruth to realize manhood.

Justin Turner, Marlon Byrd, and an Education in Hitting

Justin Turner isn’t Babe Ruth — mostly because only Babe Ruth is Babe Ruth. Of late, however, Turner’s numbers have been Ruthian in nature. Consider: since the beginning of 2014, only two hitters in all of baseball have been better than Turner, pound for pound. Two hitters! All this after the Mets released him. Turns […]

Yankees recreate The Sandlot’s Babe Ruth scene

Who says the New York Yankees don’t know how to have fun? A bunch of their players got together to recreate the classic scene from The Sandlot where it’s revealed that Smalls has taken his stepfather’s autographed Babe Ruth ball and lost it to “The Beast.” It seems quite appropriate to have Yankees’ players discussing the greatness of Babe Ruth. However, there’s quite...
