Babe Ruth played 22 seasons of major league baseball; Jackie Robinson, a mere ten. That's fewer than the number of seasons Ruth hit forty or more home runs.


Still Babe Ruth. He was a tremendous hitter and what makes him even more special was his pitching ability. In 1916 he was 23-12 with a 1.75 ERA! Its a rare combination. I'M NOT A YANKEES FAN...BUT MICKEY MANTLE WAS THE BEST YANKEE EVER...I LIKE IT WHEN I HERE PEOPLE SAY BABE RUTH IS THE BEST PLAYER EVER...HE (NOT ONLY) IS NOT THE BEST PLAYER EVER...HE'S NOT THE BEST YANKEE OR RED SOX. Babe Ruth was the champ. I'd say Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. If you want to talk about right now, I'd have to go with Derek Jeter. Either Mickey Mantle or Babe Ruth Neither the Babe nor Mickey is the best. Whitey Ford is the best Yankee ever. No, the best Yankees are Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte. If you want to go to the past, I'll say Lou Gehrig or Mickey Mantle, not Babe Ruth because he was a Red Sock and he wasn't a true Yankee. I love the Yankees they are the best and Babe Ruth is still the best player!!


Nobody has hit 900 home runs. Barry Bonds has hit 73 home runs in 2001. That's more than Babe Ruth hit. Babe Ruth hit 714 home runs in his career, Barry hit 73 in a year. Hope that helps.


Hank Aaron (Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves) hit more than Babe Ruth and has since been passed by Barry Bonds (Pittsburgh Pirates & San Francisco Giants).


DiMaggio was a better overall hitter believe it or not, but Ruth hit more home runs! It surprised me but it's true


Major league players who have hit 714 home runs or more: Barry Bonds, Henry Aaron and Babe Ruth. Ruth ended his career with 714.
