Babe Ruth

The consensus best baseball player of all-time due to his excellence both as a hitter and a pitcher, Babe Ruth is one of the most widely recognized figures in sports history. Most often associated with the New York Yankees, Ruth started his career with the Boston Red Sox, where as a pitcher he was among the league's best and was a standout World Series performer. Ruth's move from the Red Sox to the Yankees marked the end of an era of World Series titles in Boston and the beginning of a World Series winning tradition for the Yankees. This trade become the most famous in baseball history, and later it was added to lore that Ruth cursed the Sox, a curse that would cause an 86 year gulf between Red Sox World Series wins. Ruth's home run hitting prowess on the Yankees is widely considered to have saved baseball in the aftermath of the Chicago Black Sox scandal that discredited the sport. Ruth would demolish home run records, both single season and career, before his finishing his career out with the Boston Braves. Babe Ruth was elected to the Hall Of Fame in 1936.
