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!
