To this day, Babe Ruth is one of the most-famous baseball players in the world. If you ask a random person to name five baseball players, there’s a good chance that Ruth will get mentioned. You could make the argument for him being the greatest player ever. He was maybe the first true celebrity the sport birthed. The life of one George Herman Ruth wasn’t always glorious, but a look back at his career is full of iconic moments and incredible accomplishments.

George Herman Ruth had a troubled childhood. In fact, he spent much of his youth at the St. Mary’s Industrial School for Boys, a reform school and orphanage. Ruth often found himself in trouble, but he also found an outlet in baseball, a sport he excelled at. Oftentimes he was only allowed to leave the premises of St. Mary’s to play baseball. In 1914, the Baltimore Orioles of the International League signed him to a deal. This is where he first earned the nickname “Babe.”

Babe signs with the Red Sox

Ruth’s time with the Orioles was short-lived, as the team had basically no money. Babe played a few exhibition games but had his contract sold to the Boston Red Sox in July of 1914.

As you likely know, Ruth began his career as a pitcher. Babe made his debut on July 11, 1914 against the Cleveland Naps. The Red Sox, and Ruth, won the game 4-3. However, his first season with the Red Sox he was barely used, which is fair given he was an inexperienced teenager.

Winning the ERA title and a World Series

By 1916, Ruth had become one of the best pitchers in the league. The Red Sox won two 1-0 games that Ruth started and finished, including a 13-inning shutout. Overall, Ruth had nine shutouts in 1916 while posting a 1.75 ERA. Both led the league, and the nine shutouts was a record for lefties until 1978. Oh, and the Red Sox won the World Series.

Ruth pitches and hits

The first few seasons of his career Ruth rarely got to hit, as he was primarily pitching. That changed in the 1918 season, which was impacted by World War I. Ruth really wanted to bat more, and Boston’s new, inexperienced manager Ed Barrow decided to give him a shot. Babe hit a home run in four-straight games at one point and finished with a .300 batting average and 11 home runs. Oh, and he also went 13-7 with a 2.22 ERA as a pitcher.

The Babe sets a new home run record

In 1919, Ruth was still pitching a bit, but had primarily become an outfielder and a hitter. Babe quickly broke the American League record for home runs in a season, as the record was only 16 at the time. When Ruth started hitting home runs, he was really rewriting record books. By the end of the season, Ruth had piled up 29 home runs, which beat the Major League record of 27, which had been set in a ballpark with right field only 215 feet from home plate.

Ruth moves to the Yankees (you may have heard about this)

It’s one of the most-famous moments in baseball history. The reasoning for it is debated to this day. All we know is the Boston Red Sox sold the contract of Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees in 1919. The Curse of the Bambino was born.

The first 50-homer season

Ruth was a huge star attraction by the time he signed with the Yankees, and his star only rose in New York. Bear in mind that Ruth had just set the record for home runs in a season with 29. In his first season as a Yankee, Ruth hit 54 home runs. This was a massive uptick in the home run record, and Ruth would go on to become by far the most-prolific power hitter of his generation.

Ruth sets the career home run mark

Speaking of Ruth’s power prowess. In early 1921, the Babe hit the 139th homer of his career. Not a big deal, right? Except, this set a new record for career home runs. Prior to the arrival of Ruth, the record for home runs in a career belonged to Roger Connor, who hit 138. There were many more home runs to come for the Babe.

Ruth gets suspended

The Yankees made it to the 1921 World Series, but fell short against the New York Giants. After the season, Ruth and two of his teammates decided to go on a barnstorming tour for some cash. However, Kenesaw Mountain Landis, the first commissioner of baseball, had a rule in place that did not allow World Series participants to tour like that. Ruth and his teammates were suspended and fined their World Series checks. The rule would be changed in 1922. Later, during the 1922 season, Ruth would be suspended again, this time for going in the stands to confront a heckler.

The House that Ruth Built

After the 1922 season, the Yankees lease at the Polo Grounds was over. The owners were looking for their own stadium, and they would indeed build one in the Bronx, completing Yankee Stadium in time for the 1923 season. Ruth would hit the first home run at Yankee Stadium, and it became known as “the House that Ruth Built,” in part because of the popularity of the Babe boosting the Yankees’ profits. Indeed, the park was built with Ruth in mind, as the right field was shallower and the sun was not in Ruth’s eyes in the outfield.

Babe wins his only MVP, and then his only batting title

Mark Rucker/Transcendental Graphics/Getty Images

It’s crazy to think that Ruth only won a single MVP, but it’s true. That win came in 1923, the first year of Yankee Stadium. Babe hit .393 with 41 homers and 45 doubles, and the Yankees won the American League by 17 games. The next season, Ruth hit .378, which won him the batting title.

Ruth is hospitalized

While he was an elite baseball player, Ruth was not necessarily in the greatest of shape all the time. In 1925, the Babe had some health issues. He first felt ill in Hot Springs, Arkansas during the offseason, but during spring training he collapsed and had to be put on a train back to New York. There were even reports that he had died. Later he would collapse again and have to be hospitalized once more. The exact cause of Ruth’s health issues at the time are unknown. Sportswriter W.O. McGeehan claimed it was from eating hot dogs and drinking soda during the game. This was, of course, a time when the media would often product athletes. It is known that Ruth was a heavy drinker, and some have speculated that played a role in Ruth’s hospitalization. The truth remain unclear.

Murderers’ Row and 60 homers

To this day, there are those that consider the 1927 New York Yankees the greatest team of all-time. Led by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, the team known as Murderers’ Row won 110 games, then an American League record, and won the pennant by 19 games. The Yankees would win the World Series in a sweep as well. As for Ruth, he also made history by hitting 60 home runs, a record that would stand for many years.

The Babe calls his shot

B Bennett/Getty Images

In 1929, the Yankees introduced uniform numbers, bestowing three on Ruth because he batted third. A few years later, in 1932, the Yankees and Cubs squared off in the World Series. It was a heated series, but it also gave us a famed moment. In Game 3, the first at Wrigley Field, the score was tied 4-4 when Ruth came up to the plate. Some say that Ruth gestured toward center field, indicating he planned to hit the ball there. Others say he didn’t really call his shot. All we know for sure is that Ruth absolutely mashed a home run to center field to give the Yankees the lead. New York would win the series.

Ruth pitches one last time

In 1933, Ruth took part in the first-ever All-Star Game, even though he was starting to fade from his peak. In the final game of the season, Ruth pitched against the Red Sox. Granted, it was a publicity stunt, but Ruth still pitched a complete game and got a win. It was the last time he would ever pitch.

The last season with the Yankees

By 1934, Ruth wasn’t really capable of fielding or running, and even took a pay cut for the Yankees. While he was no longer athletic enough for some of the aspects of baseball, he could still hit to a degree. Ruth batted .288 and hit 22 home runs. Not bad numbers, but definitely a significant step down for the Babe.

Ruth joins the Boston Braves

Ruth really wanted to become a manager. After the 1934 season, realizing his playing days were effectively over, he tried to get a job managing the Yankees. He was almost made the manager of the farm team, the Newark Bears, but the Yankees’ owner decided against it at the last second. Left with nothing to do, Ruth would sign on to play for the Boston Braves. Mostly a publicity stunt for a struggling team, Ruth only played in 28 games and hit .181 with six homers.

Ruth retires, briefly coaches, then leaves baseball

Ruth hung up the clears after the 1935 season with the Braves. The Babe still wanted to manage, and the Cleveland job came open, but he was not seriously considered. Eventually, Ruth was given a job as the first-base coach of the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1938. However, Ruth was told he would not be considered as the next manager of the team, and after the season Dodgers player Leo Durocher was hired as the new manager. Ruth stepped down as first-base coach and never was involved in baseball again.

The inaugural Hall of Fame class

In 1936, Cooperstown inducted its first-ever Hall of Fame class. The five members were all legends. Joining Ruth in the 1936 class were Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Christy Mathewson, and Honus Wagner.

The Babe visits Yankee Stadium one last time

Ruth first developed cancer in 1946, and it would become a recurring issue for the rest of his life. On June 13, 1948 Ruth made a public appearance at Yankee Stadium to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the House that Ruth Built. He had lost a considerable amount of weight and used a cane as a bat. A photo taken by Nat Fein of Ruth on the field that day won a Pulitzer Prize.

Babe Ruth passes away

In July of 1948, Ruth entered Memorial Hospital in New York, and he would spend most of the rest of his life there. Babe left a couple times, one to pay a visit to Baltimore, one to see the premiere of “The Babe Ruth Story.” A few weeks later, August 16, 1948, Ruth would die in his sleep. He was only 53.

The legacy of the Great Bambino

Bettmann/Getty Images

In his short life, Ruth basically changed the game of baseball. His power hitting was revolutionary. After breaking the career home run record of 138, Ruth would finish with 714 total home runs. That record would stand for many years. Ruth is still third on the career homer list. His career slugging percentage, OPS, and OPS+ are all still the best in baseball history. And that’s with him beginning his career as an above-average pitcher! The Babe was the most-famous baseball player in the world for decades. He may still be.

“Both of those guys took a dramatically different approach this offseason from what they’ve previously done,” Cressey said during an appearance on YES Network Thursday night, as transcribed by the New York Post. “I’d say in both cases, they lifted less than they have in the past.”
Injuries led to Judge playing in 112 games in 2018 and only 102 in 2019 following an impressive debut in 2017 when he burst upon the MLB scene by leading the American League in home runs, winning the AL Rookie of the Year award and coming in second in AL MVP voting.
In 2020, a cracked rib and a punctured lung short-circuited his spring training, and Judge ended up playing in only 32 regular-season games in MLB’s truncated 60-game schedule due to a Grade 1 right calf strain.
Judge alluded to shaking things up in his offseason routine in November, saying his goal was to figure out how to put his chronic injury woes behind him. Cressey mentioned Thursday just how Judge is going about accomplishing as much.

“Aaron in particular has taken a heavy interest in a lot of yoga. We’ve had a great instructor in Dana Santas who’s come in and helped out at our spring-training complex. Not just Aaron, but Luke [Voit] and Mike Ford and Thairo [Estrada] and Nick Nelson, a lot of those guys who are down there. So that’s something that I think is important.
“But also, we have to be mindful of the stresses on guys who are 6-foot-7, 6-foot-8. Big dudes who are standing around for long periods of time in cleats. Those are things that normal people don’t encounter. So I think we’ve understood their preparation has to be markedly different in terms of not just building them up as athletes, but building them up as baseball players where there is a gradual on-ramping of those specific stressors. Running the bases, changing directions, swinging. So both of those guys are in a good place.”
Stanton, like Judge, had his 2020 campaign stall even before it started due to a calf injury, and he ultimately missed five and a half weeks of the season due to a strained left hamstring. Across the 2019 and 2020 campaigns, Stanton appeared in only 41 games.

Big changes are underway with Stanton, however, and hopefully with some encouraging results, a positive outcome.
“It was really a testament to how open-minded he had been to attacking things a little bit different, and so I’m really excited to get some more time with those guys in person,” Cressely said of Stanton specifically and of Judge as well.

การแข่งขัน: รอบที่ 121 - 152 อันดับที่ 152

It took more than two months, but high-end free agents have finally come flying off the board in Major League Baseball over the past few weeks. J.T. Realmuto, George Springer, DJ LeMahieu, Didi Gregorius, Masahiro Tanaka, Liam Hendriks, Michael Brantley, Marcus Semien, Andrelton Simmons, Joc Pederson, Jose Quintana and Nelson Cruz – all among MLBTR’s top 20 free agents when the offseason began – have agreed to deals since 2021 opened. 
The open market does still feature several notable names from MLBTR’s rankings, though, as you’ll see below. (Number indicates ranking at the start of the offseason.)

1.) Trevor Bauer, RHP (original prediction: four years, $128M)The reigning NL Cy Young winner remains without an employer as spring training approaches, though a resolution could come very soon. It may now be a two-horse race between the Mets and Dodgers to secure Bauer’s services.
4.) Marcell Ozuna, OF/DH (original prediction: four years, $72M)Ozuna is still in limbo partly because MLB hasn’t announced whether the universal DH will return in 2021. He spent most of his season there last year with Atlanta and was a premier hitter in terms of both bottom-line production and Statcast figures. The Dodgers, Brewers, Yankees, Red Sox and Twins have been connected to Ozuna in the rumor mill. The Twins have since agreed to re-sign DH Nelson Cruz, so Ozuna may have lost one suitor this week.
11.) Jake Odorizzi, RHP (original prediction: three years, $39M)While Odorizzi went through a difficult and injury-shortened year in 2020, the Twins are still interested in re-signing him. At least a few other teams are targeting the 30-year-old, so he figures to land on his feet with a nice deal in the coming weeks.

14.) Justin Turner, 3B (original prediction: two years, $24M)There appear to be four finalists for Turner, who has been a tremendous contributor for the Dodgers dating back to his 2014 breakout. A return to the Dodgers is on the table, though Turner’s age (36) is working against him when it comes to earning power. It’s possible neither Los Angeles nor any other team will give him more than a two-year deal.
21.) Jackie Bradley Jr., CF (original prediction: two years, $16M)With George Springer off the board, Bradley is undoubtedly the premier center field option left in free agency. The longtime member of the Red Sox, 30, has received interest from Boston, the Mets and the Giants over the past couple of weeks. He’s reportedly shooting for “a significant contract,” possibly for more than four years.
22.) James Paxton, LHP (original prediction: one year, $10M)Paxton held a showcase that up to 20 teams attended at the end of December, and it apparently went well. The Blue Jays, Mets, Cardinals and Phillies are among the clubs that have shown some interest in the 32-year-old Canadian. Paxton endured an injury-wrecked 2020 with the Yankees, so he’s not a free agent at the best time, but he’s only two seasons removed from putting up very good production and has historically held his own when healthy.

23.) Taijuan Walker, RHP (original prediction: two years, $16M)After a trade from the Mariners, Walker closed the year with the flourish as a member of the Blue Jays, though it’s unclear whether they’re interested in re-signing him. The 28-year-old combined for a 2.70 ERA in 53 1/3 innings between the two teams, but that came with a much less impressive 4.60 SIERA and below-average strikeout and swinging-strike rates.
27.) Trevor Rosenthal, RP (original prediction: two years, $14M)The former St. Louis closer was brilliant last season between the Royals and Padres, which came after a couple of trying years owing to injury and poor performance. Rosenthal is now the No. 1 reliever left on the board. San Diego and Toronto are a couple of the teams that have considered him so far.
32.) Yadier Molina, C (original prediction: one year, $10M)While Molina has gotten interest from other teams this offseason, a reunion with the Cardinals seems inevitable. The 38-year-old has been been part of the organization since it drafted him in 2000, and indications are that he and the Cards want to stick together.
46.) Rick Porcello, RHP (original prediction: one year, $5M)Porcello is nowhere near the AL Cy Young winner he was with the Red Sox in 2016, but he remains an innings eater who can at least fill out the back of a team’s rotation. However, the rumor mill centering on the 32-year-old has been quiet this winter.
