Grover Cleveland’s daughter was Baby Ruth…

Filed under: Uncategorized — stevemryan @ 2:41 am

But to any baseball fan, the candy bar was named after Babe Ruth.  He started as a pitcher with an A&C grade and he also knocked in the first run of the game.  Later, he moved a runner up a base for the second and final run.  The 1916 Red Sox beat the host 1916 St Louis Cardinals 2-0.

The interesting match-up is The Rajah v The Babe.  The greatest 2nd baseman v The greatest player. Remember, Babe Ruth was one of the best pitchers of his day before he took up hitting full time.  

That is my argument for the greatest player ever.  Scoreless innings tossed in the World Series:  29+.  Home Runs hit: 714.  ‘Nuff said.
