About Babe Ruth
Babe Ruth was an American professional baseball player.
It is known that Babe Ruth spent most of his later childhood at St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys, which was a reformatory school. Some stories say he was sent here for hitting too many baseballs into windows while playing street ball. He eventually made it to professional baseball, first playing for the Baltimore Orioles and then pitching for the Boston Red Sox. He then moved to the New York Yankees, where he rose to fame. Over his career, he had a total of 714 home runs, and still holds a record slugging percentage.
