American baseball legend George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. He established a record number of MLB batting records including career home runs (714), runs batted in (2,213) and slugging percentage (.690). During his career, he was the target of intense press and public attention and his sometimes controversial lifestyle was tempered by his willingness to do good by visiting children at hospitals and orphanages.
