Baseball’s Greatest Legends and Tales | The Great Bambino
The Sultan of Swat, The King of Crash, The Colossus of Clout, THE GREAT BAMBINO! These are just a few of the nicknames of George Herman “Babe” Ruth. The babe terrorized the MLB for 22 seasons, accumulating 714 home runs, 2214 RBI’s, and a lifetime .342 batting average. If those numbers are too old school for you, how does 182 Wins Above Replacement and a career 1.164 OPS sound? But the Babe is remembered almost as much for his exploits off the field as his performance on it.
