Babe Ruth: An American Legend
Known as Babe Ruth, but born George Herman Ruth Junior, he was a legendary baseball player from the age of 19 to 40. Starting out with the Red Sox he eventually ended up with the New York Yankees.
During that time he created, and broke, many records including the number of home runs, total bases and highest slugging percentage. So great were his achievements that many of them were not surpassed for decades.
