Babe Ruth came from a poor Baltimore family and, as a kid, he was a handful. It was at a reform school that Babe discovered his talent for baseball, and by the age of nineteen, he was on his way to becoming a sports legend. Babe was often out of shape and even more often out on the town, but he had a big heart and an even bigger swing! Kids will learn all about the Home Run King in this rags-to- riches sports biography. With black-and-white illustrations throughout, a true sports legend is brought to life.

Player Biography
Still an American icon decades after his death, George Herman “Babe” Ruth emerged from humble beginnings to become the game’s greatest slugger and gate attraction. Ruth hit home runs at a prodigious rate – his single-season output often exceeded those of entire major league teams. He retired with 714 home runs, at a time when only two other players had reached 300. Reggie Jackson once deflected a comparison to “The Sultan of Swat,” saying, “There will never be another Babe Ruth. He was the greatest home run hitter who ever lived.”
