Babe Ruth. The Great Bambino. The Sultan of Swat. Whatever you want to call him, George Herman Ruth is one of the best baseball players to ever step foot on a baseball diamond, and by far the most influential. Quite simply, no one has ever revolutionized the game of baseball like Ruth has.
Ruth signed his first professional contract with a minor league club on Valentine’s Day 1914 that was that start of one of the most game-changing careers in sports history.
