JOURNEYS 5 GOING TO THE GAME<<<<<

When you think of American sports legends of the 20th century or any century for that matter number one on the list has to be Babe Ruth. As George Will put it so well when he said he was like an Everest in Kansas. No player has dominated his sport in such a way that Babe Ruth did, either before or since. While watching one of the playoff games recently I heard them say that to equal the number of homers Ruth hit in 1921 vs what the league did a player today would have to hit over 300 homers in a season. The Babe saved baseball from the 1919 scandal, as well as changed the way the game was played. In era when the longball was becoming the number one weapon nobody was better then Ruth. Also no team was better then the Yankees. They made six trips to the series in the 20's and won 3 of them, of those World Series wins two came on 4 game sweeps. The 1927 team is often considered the greatest team of all-time. Their lineup which includes Combs, Ruth, Gehrig, Meusel and Lazzeri was known as " Murders Row ". They all batted over .300 led by Gehrig at .373. Ruth, Gehrig and Lazzeri finished 1,2 and 3 in homers with 60, 47 and 18. Gehrig led the league with 175 RBIs followed by Ruth with 164. Lazzeri and Meusel also surpassed the century mark for the season. As a team, compared to the last place Red Sox they score almost 400 more runs, batted 48 points higher, hit 130 more homers (158-2 and finished 59 games ahead with 110 wins to 51 by Boston. Their opponent in the series that year was the Pittsburgh Pirates. Who were a good hitting team who hit for average as well as any team in the Majors that season. They played in huge park, so their homer total was just 58 but they had 78 triples to go along with it. Still despite that talent, in the series they went down in 4 games to the Yankees.

I loved the info. re. Babe Ruth. When I was kid, I was a Cardinals fan, but also a Yankees fan. I read everything I could find about Babe Ruth, Lou Gehring, Joe DiMaggio, the Yankees and of course my boyhood hero, #7, Mickey Mantle!
