Babe RUTH (HOF)

Biography

Ruth is no kid anymore but he still socks the horsehide like nobody else. Just ask Charlie Root of the Cubs, made the goat of last year’s Series by the finger-pointing Babe. Ruth played only 133 games last year but still hit 41 homers and batted .341. The fans will be disappointed if the great Bambino fails to make a good show against the NL “all-stars.” Ruth wants to manage when he’s all through, and the big game will give him a chance to learn from the winningest field boss of all time, Mr. Mack. At the start of this season Babe had 652 roundtrippers, twice as many as the next closest batsman.
