Ruth, Babe

About the book
The Bambino . . . The Sultan of Swat . . . The Colossus of Clout . . . Babe Ruth is widely regarded as the #1 baseball player of all time. His contribution to the sport simply can’t be overstated: Largely responsible for bringing baseball to its current level of popularity, Ruth changed the game from a low-scoring, speed-dominated sport to the high-scoring, power-hitting baseball we see today. Larger than life in his own time, the Babe continues to be a legendary figure in ours.

Babe Ruth is the ultimate book for any true baseball fan, telling the story of his groundbreaking career as well as memorable tales from his often-colorful life off the field. Featuring a winning line-up of rare and never-before-published photographs, the book also includes pull-out facsimile reproductions of memorabilia such as World Series tickets from 1916 to 1932; newspaper articles chronicling the Babe’s record-breaking achievements; the official souvenir program from opening day at Yankee Stadium in 1923; and Babe Ruth’s first professional baseball contract.

A glorious memento of an incredible career, Babe Ruth is a fitting tribute to one of the 20th century’s towering personalities.
