“I’d give a year of my life if I could hit a home run on opening day of this great new park.” –Babe Ruth
It was opening day 1923 that the all-new Yankee Stadium — dubbed “The House That Ruth Built” — opened to the public. And Babe wanted to hit a home run to commemorate the occasion. So what did he do? He did what legends do. He cracked one over the fence, becoming the first player to homer in the new ballpark.
He had the nicknames. “The Sultan of Swat.” “The Bambino.” “The Caliph of Clout.” “Babe.”
He had the numbers – 714 (home runs), 2,213 (RBI), .342 (batting average), and a million (memories). No. 3 is a timeless legend, and he remains forever synonymous with baseball.
As baseball kicks off another season on April 1, we pay tribute to the godfather of modern baseball and the greatest icon the America’s pastime has ever known — the great Babe Ruth.
