This article is going to be about Babe Ruth and why we like him.

He hit 714 home runs in 22 seasons. not 726. I would fix this website- a lot of the facts are wrong

He started in Boston, then got traded to the New York. Remember the Boston curse they had for 80 years; it was because of George Herman Ruth.
