Babe Ruth

George Herman ďBabeĒ Ruth, who lived from 1895 to 1948, is almost unanimously considered the greatest baseball player of all time.

Babe began his major league baseball career as a dominant pitcher, who compiled an excellent 94-46 record. However, in 1918, he was switched over to outfielder so he could bat every day and take advantage of his superb hitting skills.

Babe soon revolutionized the game by becoming the first dominant home run hitter. He broke the single season home run record in 1919, and then broke that record three more times. He retired with a record 714 career major league home runs. To this day, only two other players (Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds) have surpassed that mark.
