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!
