The Babe

The year 1914 was also the year that Babe Ruth made his major league debut. One of the best players to ever play the game started with the Red Sox 100 years ago. How wonderful it must have been to be a fan back then.


  1. Eheeem... THATS RED SOX, Not Red Socks. You are forgiven. The Boston Braves of the NL, won the World series that year. The Babe played 5 games for the Sox in 1914 as a pitcher. He could hit and pitch equally well. The complete package. He was sent to the Providence Grays, minor league team and came back up in 1915.

    1. The Sultan of Swat. The Bambino.

  2. Neat photo. I've never seen a photo of him so young.

  3. The old days...25 cents to get in 25 cents for a hot dog and 10 cents for a those will cost you at least $50.00...
