2 Point Lead: 'Sports Highlights' celebrates Babe Ruth

2 Point Lead: 'Sports Highlights' Celebrates Babe Ruth


George Herman Ruth blasted 714 career home runs -- good for third all-time in baseball history -- and his heroics have helped The Bambino remain a household name more than eight decades after his last Major League appearance.

The statistics are almost unimaginable even today: The Sultan of Swat ranks first all-time in Yankees history in runs (1,959), home runs (659), walks (1,852), average (.349), slugging percentage (.711), and on-base percentage (.484).

He did all those special things despite having a big reputation for partying a tad too hard. A lot.
