      Congratulations to Babe Ruth, his family & fans, on the occasion of his induction into the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame - June 12, 2010:
      Babe earned that honor. I have a folder full of all the good deeds he did, too many news articles to post here.
      Countless visits to hospitals, orphanages to cheer up some kids. A number of times he would just jump in his car, make a personal visit to a private home. A number of charity, fund raising for churches black and white, selling off his autographed baseballs. Even into the last few months of his life, still visiting sick or under privileged kids.
      His entire life was spent doing anything he could to cheer up others, he always found time for that.

      During the war years dozens of appearances to aid the war effort, autographed baseballs, any way he could help to raise money.
      Here is a pic of Babe with a purchase one of the two 50,000.00 dollar War Bonds.
      Also hats off to Mel Ott and Jack Dempsey who made a great number of appearances with Babe during the war years.

              • A ploy by gamblers, spread a rumor, Babe and some other Yanks injured, will not play today.

                    • If not for the lost home run, his prediction was right on. As most of us are aware, he finished with 59 homers in 1921. This is officially a lost home run, listed at Retrosheet as such.

                          • Two giants of the game face off. Happy ending, they appear to let go, play ball.

                            • Here is a conversation between Guy Bush and Babe in that 1932 WS, who had traded insults only a few innings ago during the "Called Shot" at bat. Bush calling Babe all kinds of names and so far off the Cub bench, the ump orders him to get back to the bench. Now as far as Babe is concerned thats in the past.
                              In the very next game, first at bat Bush hits Babe on the arm. After the game his arm is badly bruised and swollen. As most know, they meet again in 1935 and Ruth hits number 713 and 714 off of Bush, 714 clears the roof at Forbes Field.

                              • Twice in his career, Babe 5 hit games, a wonder they pitched to him 5 times.

                                Notice the 1918 game, he was pitching, tough loss in ten innings.
                                Walter Johnson was not the starting pitcher, he pinch hit in the 9th inning and his sac fly tied the game.

                                Now Johnson pitches the 10th inning, if I recall there were two outs and now he faced Babe. Babe hit his third double of the game but was out attempting to steal 3rd base.
