I just want to say thank you. Thank you for being a great inspiration to me and a lot of other people. If I ever met you in real life, I would ask you how you hit. Your hitting inspires me to be a great hitter. Plus you started out as a pitcher, which is incredible! Most pitchers can't hit, but you defiantly proved that stereotype wrong. You held a home run record for almost forty years! No one could break your 714th career home run record. I would love to see you hit a baseball in real life! That would be so amazing! You inspire me to become a better baseball player, and a better person. I know you didn't have the best childhood, but seeing you come from that into a great person really inspires me. I just want to say thanks for being such a great baseball player, role model, and inspiration to us all!
Babe Ruth: I was born February 6, 1895, in Baltimore, Maryland.
Interviewer: When was your very first professional home run?
Babe Ruth: Hmm, oh yes I remember! I hit my very first professional home run on March 7, 1914. It was in Fayetteville, N.C.
Interviewer: So how did you start off your career?
Babe Ruth: Well, I actually started out as a pitcher. I pitched for awhile, but then I realized how good I really am at hitting, so I became an outfielder, sometimes I played as an infield though.
