⚾️ Babe Ruth Day is April 27 ⚾️

Babe Ruth Day honors the “Great Bambino, one of Baseball’s greatest players ever.

On April 27, 1947, Babe Ruth attended Yankee Stadium for Babe Ruth Day. It was to be the second last time he was at the stadium.

  • He first gained fame as a left-handed pitcher. Later in his career, he switched to outfielder.
  • Bambino means “baby boy” in Italian.
  • His first nickname was “Babe”. He was also called the “Sultan of Swat”.
  • He ended his career in a Boston Brave uniform.
  • Babe hit 714 home runs.
  • Amazingly, he was not a unanimous selection for the Baseball Hall of Fame.
  • Babe’s lifetime hitting percentage was .690.

How to Celebrate Babe Ruth Day?

  • Read a book on Babe Ruth.
  • Attend a baseball game.
  • Collect some Babe Ruth memorabilia.
