After the 1920 Championship Season

The 1920 World Championship was the high mark for the Indians, who had reached baseball’s pinnacle after finishing second in the previous two years. It wouldn’t last. The Yankees’ purchase of Babe Ruth was a game changer. The speed that people thought was lacking on the team as the season dawned turned out to be unnecessary, as it was more than replaced by power. Ruth ended...

For many Americans, Dean Smith is best known as the man who coached Michael Jordan in college. Smith is, quite simply, the man who mentored one of America’s two greatest team-sport athletes from the 20th century, Babe Ruth being the other. (Muhammad Ali, of course, didn’t play a team sport.)

For Babe Ruth? Up to that point, Ruth had spent six seasons in Carmine...
