The 113-Year-Old Babe

Today is Babe Ruth’s birthday.  He’d be 113 if he was still alive.  The Babe was the greatest hitter ever to pick up a baseball bat.  Just in case you feel inclined to argue, click here to see his numbers and you’ll change your mind.

(Of course, his stats don’t tell the whole story.  For instance, you wouldn’t know that in 1921 he hit more homers than eight major league teams.  He reinvented baseball the way Alexander Graham Bell reinvented communication.)
