Babe Ruth


American baseball star, a legend in his own time, called the best baseball player who ever lived. He was Baseball fans' most popular star, one of the best pitchers and the greatest slugger with 60 home runs in a single season, 1927. After that final homer, he ran into the dugout and roared, "That's 60. Count 'em, 60! Let's see some son-of-a-bitch beat that!" During his 22 year career, he had a batting average of .342. Reigning during the golden age of sports, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936.

The son of a saloonkeeper, Ruth's family lived upstairs over the bar. He was a rowdy upstart, skipping school, stealing from the produce stands and copping shots of whiskey from dad's bar. His folks finally sent him to a training and reform school, St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys. While there, he learned to play baseball. In February 1914, he was picked up as a rookie and showed his great promise from his first season.

Hell-bent, husky and lusty, he once bragged that he could perform with every girl in a St. Louis bordello, and the report runs that he filled his boast.

Ruth died of a cancerous tumor at 8:01pm on 16 August 1948, Manhattan, New York.

On 4 December 2016, Sy Scholfield forwarded Ruth's certificates of birth, baptism, marriage and death, plus his WWI and WWII draft forms found on the "Babe Ruth Genealogy Project Records" webpage published by Stephen A. Connor [1]. None of the documents record a time of birth. The BC has "Feb 6th 95" with the numeral "6" apparently written in bold over another numeral. The baptism certificate has Feb 7, 1895. The WWI form has "Feb. 7, 1894" and the WWII form has "Feb 6, 1895" both signed by Ruth. The DC has birth date of Feb. 7, 1895 and death time of "8:01 Pm." The Feb. 6/7 discrepancy is explained in "Babe Ruth: The Big Moments of the Big Fellow" by Thomas Meany (A.S. Barnes, 1947), p. 9: "All the record books listed his natal day as February 7, 1894, yet when a birth certificate for Ruth was unearthed in Baltimore as a passport credential, the date of his birth was given as February 6, 1895, a discrepancy of 364 days."

Scholfield quotes from the account of Ruth's birth in the biography, "Babe Ruth: His Life and Legend" by Kal Wagenheim (Open Road Media, 2014): "February 6, 1895, was one of the coldest days in memory.... He was a big child and nearly tore her apart. A few hours later, after Mrs. Graf had gone, “Little George” lay sleeping beside his exhausted mother. His father, after coming from work early that evening, fussed and cooed, smiling proudly." This unsourced account is consistent with a birth time of late morning to early afternoon.
