George Herman “Babe” Ruth was born on February 6, 1895 in Baltimore, MD. While attending St. Mary’s Industrial School for Boys, Jack Dunn, owner of the Baltimore Orioles, signed Ruth to a contract for $600. Ruth then got his nickname “Babe” when a sportswriter called him one of “Dunn’s babes.” In 1914, Ruth started playing for the Boston Red Sox. From 1915 to 1919, he won 87 games and won three World Series games. In 1920, Babe Ruth started playing for the New York Yankees. In 1927, Ruth hit 60 home runs, a record that was unbroken until 1961.
