Babe Ruth was one of the greatest baseball players of all time. Many polls place him as the greatest baseball player in history. Ruth began his carrer as a Boston Red Sox pitcher. He compiled an 89-46 win-loss record, and set several World Series records. In 1920, Ruth was sold to the New York Yankees, where he soon led the league in home runs, walks, RBIs, and total bases several times. Ruth hit 60 home runs in his 1927 season, and compiled 714 carrer homers, both records that would not be broken until 1961 and 1974, respectively. Ironically, the Red Sox floundered after Ruth left them,leading many people to believe in a "Curse Of The Bambino". Indeed,the Red Sox would never win a World Series again until 2004-86 years later.
