“You just can’t beat the person
who never gives up.”

*George Herman Ruth, Jr.
Born: February 6, 1895 Baltimore, Maryland USA
Died: August 16, 1948 (age 53) New York, New York, USA
An American Major League baseball player from 1914–1935. Ruth broke into the major leagues with the Boston Red Sox as a starting pitcher, but after he was sold to the New York Yankees in 1919, he converted to a full-time right fielder and subsequently became one of the league’s most prolific hitters, with 714 career home runs and the first to hit 60 home runs in a season in 1927. Ruth was a mainstay in the Yankees’ lineup that won seven pennants and four World Series titles during his tenure with the team. After a short stint with the Boston Braves in 1935, Ruth retired. In 1936, Ruth became one of the first five players elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
