        Please help. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer last summer, and now I'm in a position where I need financial assistance. For the full story, please check out my GoFundMe campaign at Thank you.

          I didn't know that. Interesting.

          I think the entire history of American sports would've been different had Babe not ended up as a Yankee. Before his time, pro sports weren't the massive celebrity business they are now. Babe changed all that by being the first superstar athlete, and the spotlight of New York was key in that. Baltimore is a wonderful city, but in terms of glamour, it doesn't compare to the Big Apple.
