The judge promised his son that he would see Babe Ruth hit a home run, so the
two of them went on the road to follow the Yankees until they saw him hit one out.
The other 399 men on the major-league rosters were in danger of becoming
Babe Ruth's supporting cast. It is a common ... It is more precise to say that Ruth's
amazing season of 192o was so interesting to the people that they had less
attention to spare for the Black Sox story as it came out in dribbles. In one column

Becoming Babe Ruth. 40 pp. Candlewick 2013. ISBN 978-0-76365646-1. series.
Tavares profiles the iconic George Herman “Babe” Ruth, shining a light on the
flamboyant slugger's charitable side. The author-illustrator expertly conveys
Ruth's charm through mixed-media illustrations—the boyish grin, the huge
appetite (one humorous scene features Ruth in front of an outlandish spread at a
restaurant), the love of the game he played so well. A standout sports picture-
book biography.

So, after a harsh rebuke from his tough (physically and behaviorally) manager,
there was superstar Babe Ruth pitching batting practice in a rubber suit on April 1
, 1919. Obviously, such a scenario could never happen now. The notion of a sore
-armed, superstar pitcher being forced to throw batting practice would be total
anathema. Edward Barrow was a key figure in the development of Major League
Baseball. Early in his professional life, as a Minor League executive, he was
credited ...

My sense of what it meant to be a lawyer was based on pure fantasy. To me, all
lawyers were like Clarence Darrow, highminded saviors who would do good and
bring good to all and sundry. If I ever thought about it realistically, of course, I
would have realized that I had about as much chance of becoming Clarence
Darrow as I had of becoming Babe Ruth, Clark Gable, or, for that matter, Shirley
Temple. For one thing, my powers of memory retention had very little staying
power, which ...

He began dreaming about becoming a big-game taxidermist, just as other boys
dreamt about becoming Babe Ruth. A while later, a local butcher gave him a calf
head so that he could pretend to be Carl Akeley. But when he pulled the head out
of the burlap sack, it had been bisected and was rotting. David dug a hole and
buried it. He also buried the museum taxidermy idea. During World War II, David
joined the Marines, and from 1943 to 1946 he was stationed in Guam. “Should I

I think he was being helped by God all the way, along with Brother Matthias and
the fact that his father put him there; it was just one of those things that was meant
to be." Ruth, who normally loathed authority, said that he so admired the
muscular Matthias, who stood around 6 feet 6 inches and about 250 pounds, that
he emulated his pigeon-toed gait as well as his swing-for-the-fences approach to
the game. When he was 15, Ruth even expressed a copycat desire to become a
