McFarlane - Cooperstown Series 2 - "Babe" Ruth
George Herman Ruth remains as one of the most dominant sports figures of the 20th century. "The Babe" brought unparalleled power to the game of baseball, often out-homering other TEAMS during his early career. After winning 89 games as a left-handed pitcher for Boston, the Red Sox shipped him to the Yankees in exchange for a curse and some cash. Ruth led the American League in homers 12 times, crushing 714 longballs while leading the Yankees to seven pennants and four World Series titles.
