Summary of Babe Ruth Summary of Babe Ruth Reviews for Babe Ruth An Excerpt from Babe Ruth
Babe Ruth is still regarded as perhaps the greatest baseball player ever to step on a diamond. Born into a poor family in Baltimore, George Herman Ruth Jr. was sent to a Catholic reform school at age seven, where he learned how to play baseball.
