Babe Ruth

His Life and Legend

eBook - 1999
Rate this:
Unparalleled by any other baseball star in history, Babe Ruth was a lively character remembered for his dramatic heroism on the baseball diamond and in his life. Kal Wagenheim illustrates this larger-than-life athlete in his book Babe Ruth: His Life & Legend, and describes him as both a product of his childhood in Baltimore and of his formative years as a New York Yankee. He struggled desperately with the drastic contrast between the poverty of his youth and the glamour and stardom that his famed career brought him, and although his name became synonymous with wooing women and abusing alcohol, neither prevented him from becoming one of history's greatest athletes.
