    "By common consent, Ruth was the hardest hitter of history; a fine fielder, if not a finished one; an inspired base runner, seeming to do the right thing without thinking. He had the most perfect co-ordination of any human animal I ever knew." - Hugh Fullerton, 1936 (Chicago sports writer, 1893-1930's)

              "Too bad about Ruth. If he had remained a pitcher, he might have lasted a long time and become famous."
              Tris Speaker, Ruth's team mate in 1915, on hearing the news in January, 1920, that the Yankees had acquired Babe and planned to use him full time as an OFer.
