Babe Ruth
Babe Ruth was a man of huge achievements. He began his baseball career as a left-handed pitcher, and later moved to the outfield. The Babe did not achieve legendary status because of his talents in the field, though. He won America’s heart by swatting dramatic home runs and with his larger-than-life style.
 
After six years with the Boston Red Sox, Ruth was traded to the New York Yankees in 1920. He experienced his best years in baseball with this team during the 1920s. 
 
Babe Ruth gave baseball some of its most memorable moments. His epic smash on October 1, 1932, stands as one example. This homer, the famed “Called Shot,” was hit during the third game of the World Series. Whether Ruth actually indicated his intentions to the taunting, lemon-throwing Wrigley Field crowd has been widely debated for years.
 
Ruth came to bat in the fifth inning with the score tied. He took two balls and two strikes, and signaled after each pitch. Some say this was Ruth noting the count, not predicting his homer. On the fifth pitch, Ruth sent the ball sailing over the bleachers. The crowd, knowing it had witnessed an amazing event, went wild. According to Ruth, “I didn’t exactly point to any spot. All I wanted to do was give that thing a ride out of the park...anywhere.”
