Just for fun, we thought you might enjoy seeing what the Babe would look like in ’06 pinstripes…and as a switch-hitter.
Now read about his first professional home run, which was hit…………..in Toronto?
They’ve played baseball in Canada for a long time too. Long enough to be the home of Babe Ruth’s first home run as a professional. It came when the Babe was a skinny kid playing for the Providence Grays.
But as powerful as his swing was described even then, Ruth was a pitching prospect first. That day against the old Toronto Maple Leafs, he also tossed a shutout.
