George Herman Ruth (February 6, 1895 - August 16, 1948), better known as "Babe" Ruth, also commonly known by the nicknames "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", was an American baseball player and a national icon.
Consistently chosen as the greatest baseball player in history, his home run hitting exploits and titanic appetite for living made him one of the representative figures of the Roaring Twenties.
He was one of the first five players elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, and he was the first player to hit over 30, 40 and 50 home runs in one season.
His record of 60 home runs in the 1927 season stood for 34 years until it was broken by Roger Maris with 61 home runs in 1961.
He was a member of the original American League All-Star team in 1933. In 1969, Ruth was named baseball's Greatest Player Ever in a ballot commemorating the 100th anniversary of professional baseball.
In 1998, The Sporting News named Ruth as Number One in its list of "Baseball's 100 Greatest Players
" In 1999, Ruth was elected to the Major League Baseball All-Century Team in fan balloting.......
