Sixty-seven years ago today, in 1948, baseball legend Babe Ruth died at the age of 53 -- just 23 years after his retirement from the game he changed forever.

For 54 years, Babe Ruth was the MLB's home run king. He overtook Roger Connor's record of 138 in 1920 and went on to crush an unprecedented 715 dingers over his 22-year career. His reign ended in 1974, when Hank Aaron -- who went on to hit 755 home runs -- hit his 715th career homer. But to most of the baseball world, Babe Ruth is arguably the greatest to ever do it.
