What specific thing is Babe Ruth famous for?
Home runs! He is also credited with (saving) the reputation of
baseball in the aftermath of the Black Sox scandal, though the
Judicial actions of Judge Landis who was the first High
Commissioner, is really the Modern Moses here. Ruth hit .393 one
year, I believe l923, this led the club but not the league. Ruth
NEVER batted .400. There were several .400 clubbers in his day such
as Ty Cobb, George Sisler, and the best known highest-ever in
modern baseball Rogers Hornsby- .424 in l924!
