Now seriously... Is it true Babe Ruth hit so many home runs because...

Post by Breezey Breezey on Sun Oct 10, 2010 10:16 pm

He was too fat to run the bases?
Okay... all kidding aside, I see he did have a lot of home runs and the joke was "pitched" at me from someone wanting a Baby Ruth candy bar. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'm thinking no, that's not correct, since besides his 714 home runs, he also had 506 doubles and 136 triples in his career ( which is almost unheard of even among the fastest players in the game), and also scored 2174 runs.

I'm thinking you are right, Tater! lol

It was interesting to actually look up that information and see he really did have enough home runs. Surprising the things you learn from someone's jokes. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Thank you for adding more.

Yeah, he was a bit overweight towards the end of his career, but even though he was always a little on the stocky side, he was actually pretty athletic. Did you know that early in his career, he was also a pretty good pitcher?

For me - and taking nothing away from Hank Aaron, et al...

The Babe will always be the HOMERUN KING. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

ater,
I think I did know that... not the "usual" for
a pitcher to be the Homerun King.

Well, he was a starting pitcher for the first 5 years; it was only after that that he stopped pitching and became a full time hitter and fielder.
