Is Shohei Ohtani 'The New Babe Ruth' or Something Entirely New?

"Here is passing. Never seen a player like shohei ohtani babe. Ruth was playing against pitchers who were thrown eighty-five miles an hour. Shohei otani is doing this. Against an average fastball of ninety three point five miles per hour average breaking ball. That's unlike anything babe ruth ever saw on top of that he is facing hitters on the pitching mound who were better than they have ever been also and the fact that he has a two point seven nine. Era now in one hundred things which the third best in the american league while at the same time leading all of baseball with forty home runs. It sounds ridiculous because is ridiculous. We have not seen anyone like this in history and the only thing that i hope for greenie is that shohei ohtani can stay healthy because that is all. That's keeping him from being brilliant year after year after year so greatest individual major league baseball season of any player. certainly in our lifetimes. right. I think so. I mean 'cause pitching is a completely different skill than hitting. This isn't i mean to me. It's almost akin to bo jackson playing two different sports. Yes dion sanders like it's. It's almost two different sports to be that good as a pitcher and that goes here.

"babe ruth" Discussed on Bedtime History: Inspirational Stories for Kids

"As everyone gets seated. There's a feeling of excitement in the air. The loudspeakers start playing. Take me out to the ball game. The crowd sings along. You're the crack of a baseball against a bat. The game has begun. If you're familiar with baseball. To these nicknames sound familiar the sultan of swat the great bambino the colossus of clout. These are all nicknames for one of the most famous baseball players to have ever lived babe. Ruth babe ruth wasn't his real name. His real name was george. Herman ruth junior. He was born in baltimore maryland on february. Six eighteen ninety-five his grandparents were immigrants from europe so the first language he spoke with german curling up his dad owned and ran a saloon. Their ruth really did whatever he wanted. He didn't have many rules and just ran wild with his friends through the streets of town and with his dad being busy with the business ruth got into a lot of trouble in fact he got into so much trouble and his parents can control him so they had to put him in saint mary's industrial school. This was a special school for boys who needed more structure than their parents. Were able to give them at home at the school. One of ruth's teachers brother matthias loved baseball. He taught the boys how to play and ruth got into the game too. He ended up living at the school for twelve years. And they're got a basic education and learn some life skills use these skills and became a shirt maker and can make things out of wood known as carpentry. Ruth kept playing baseball and when he was nineteen. He tried out and made the minor league team for the baltimore orioles. The other players teased ruth because he was a favourite or darling of the owner. Jack done because of this. They started calling him babe. This is how babe ruth famous nickname was born. Even though babe ruth was a big success with the orioles the owner ran into money trouble and he was forced to sell his best players to the major leagues from their ruth was sent to play for the boston red sox when he first started playing he was a left handed pitcher but really wanted to bat more so he started playing outfield and first base. He tried to hit almost everything and because of that he struck out a lot but he was very determined and never gave up. He even said that every strike brings me closer to the next homerun and the red sox fans loved him because he hit a lot of home runs one year. He hit home runs in four games in a row the next year he helped the red sox when the world series in nineteen eighteen and nineteen nineteen ruth was sold to the new york yankees. The red sox sold him because the owner wanted more money and babe ruth was worth a lot and the new york yankees wanted him because they hoped he could help them win a world series. There were lots of mixed reactions to him. being traded. some boston fans were devastated to lose ruth while others thought he was just too much trouble while he wasn't playing baseball he spent a lot of time partying and sometimes getting into trouble but the boston fans who liked ruth believe that trading him started an eighty four year curse during which the red sox did not win a world series it was called the curse of the bambino before he was traded. The red sox won five of the fifteen world series that they'd played but after they sold ruth they didn't win another world series until two thousand and four with ruth. The new york yankees did very well. In fact they won the world series four times and they won the american league title. Seven times when ruth was traded to the yankees. He became a fulltime outfielder and was now able to bat. All the time he hit homerun after homerun and the new york fans loved him during his first year. The yankees had a record number of people at the stadium. One point two million. It was the first time that any major league baseball game. Attendance had reached one million during his thirteen years with the yankees. He became the highest paid player up to that point making two and a half times more than any other player in the league. At the time. Ruth even made more money than the president of the united states on the team. He was part of a group of players called murderers row. They got that name from the power of the hitters. These players were earle. combs mark. Conic lou gehrig. Bob musil tony. Lozari and babe ruth. Sadly ruth spent many years of his life drinking too much alcohol and not taking care of his health. He also spent most of the money he made on things he didn't need and that didn't help better his life. Because of his poor health choices he began to have trouble running the bases and catching the ball. He played his last full season with the yankees. In nineteen thirty four. Ruth wanted to become a manager of a team but didn't have any luck finding a position but like hitting home runs. Ruth was never wanted to give up. He once said you just can't beat the person who never gives up. Eventually he was traded to the boston. Braves as a gate attraction. This means he was hired not necessarily because he was good anymore but because he'd been famous and would cause people to pay to come see him at the game babe. Ruth retired early that year in nineteen thirty five. The next year he was inducted into the baseball hall of fame he became popular at a time. When baseball became very popular in the united states and known as america's pastime one reason was because the world had just gone through the first world war and the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic which were very tragic times and many lives were lost. American needed something good and positive to focus on baseball and sports figures like babe. Ruth became a symbol of that optimism and fun pastime he also symbolized an american dream that someone who came from very little money and didn't have a well known family could become famous. His life also showed us that it's important to take care of yourself and set rules for yourself. If we want our bodies to work well we need to take care of them. By eating good foods and exercising babe. Ruth worked very hard and took risks to become one of the greatest homerun hitters of all time he wants said. Never let the fear of striking out. Get in your way. This means that there are many things you can worry about in life or fears that you may have keep you from acting but like babe ruth if you worry too much about striking out you'll never get those things done and swing the bat and make the move. You need to take the next step in life for you. This might mean trying out for a sport or learning how to draw or some other skill. Don't worry about what others might say or do. Don't worry about striking out and just act like babe ruth. We hope you enjoyed this episode about babe ruth. Be sure to tune in next monday for a new episode..

"Believe we're here right now. I mean, it's been a really incredible long road. I got my start in talk radio. And I want to say for the first time when I say here I mean, right here at this point. Welcome to the Dan Bongino show. I'm Dan Bongino. And, gosh, that feels good to say. Been a really long road. I never thought this would happen. And this moment is bittersweet. Mean bitter sweet in the real meaning of the phrase Bitter sweet, Not like Joe Biden says it where he screws it up and doesn't know what it means. But sweet because I get to talk to you now every day from 12 noon to three. On talk radio, which has been the heartbeat of this nation for decades now. But why is talk radio conservative talk radio specifically liberal. Screw it up. I tried that whole experiment with talk radio didn't really work. You know, we actually care about the issues. So we do this stuff and do it all the time and do it well, But why is talk radio the heartbeat of this nation? Why has it been for 30 years? Well, I could tell you most certainly isn't because of Dan Bongino. It's because of the greatest of all time. Titan of this industry, a giant Rush in Amman. That's the bitter part. Rush Limbaugh You're used to hearing for decades now me as well. We used to hearing his booming voice in your ear. This time block for 30 years. He's a giant. The Godfather. They say often, it's not just that Rush Limbaugh was the greatest player in the game. Rush Limbaugh was the greatest player in the game for 30 years. And it's not just that Rush Limbaugh was the M V P of the game for 30 years. Rush Limbaugh. Created the game. You know, you think of the greats in any business. Gretzky, Jordan, Babe Ruth. They had great 15 20 year runs. They weren't MVPs for 20 years. But they didn't invent basketball, hockey and baseball respectively. National conservative talk radio. Was practically invented by Rush Limbaugh. I want to say to the Patriots out there who've spent your time being educated, informed and entertained by the greatest talk radio host there ever will be for the last 30 years. Can't replace him. May sit in his time slot and it's the greatest honor of my life to do this. My first love has always been radio. But I can't replace him.

They've each hit seven hundred fourteen home runs and tonight. Aaron will hit number seven fifteen. The atmosphere should be celebratory and it is but in the clubhouse before the game things are unusually quiet. The braves have decided not to let the press inside. Aaron has been hounded by reporters for months and not just by reporters. He's also received close to a million pieces of mail. A third of them negative. Some of the letters have included death threats from white fans who don't want to see a black man take babe ruth's record people have written that they're going to sneak into the stands with a gun and take matters into their own hands so while aaron knows that this might be the most important baseball game of his life.

Remembering Atlanta Braves legend and longtime MLB home run king Hank Aaron

"It was a sad day in baseball last week. When hank aaron passed away at age eighty six. One of the all time greats sluggers in baseball history. He wasn't amazing player. An amazing person. And when you think about hank. Aaron and his impact on a game it was tremendous. Think about this hank. Aaron played in the negro leagues hank. Aaron came up to the big leagues and was a star from day one. And when you look at his body of work. It is an incredible incredible degree of consistency. When you think that hank aaron batted three oh five. Seven hundred and fifty five home runs almost averaged hundred. Rbi is twenty three seasons and think about this. If you took away as seven hundred and fifty five home runs from his hit total he still would have three thousand hits. Which by itself get you into the hall of fame so not only does he have three thousand hits. He has a five hundred home. More than five hundred home runs. Those two are markers for me that automatically get my vote and then when you think about what he had to go through to become the homerun champ and the hey and the threats and the racism that was pointed towards him. Think about that People saying that they were going to shoot him. Kill his kids and this guy never never came undone never lashed out at people never got angry. Just kept playing ball kept his head down. He is definitely someone you can admire. And then he did weeks that milestone passing babe ruth and what a monumental moment that was when hank aaron became the all time home run king and i know people some people say he's still my home run king and is not barry bonds and i don't really wanna get into the whole debate about this. This is about hank. Aaron and what he did. I respect what hank aaron put up his numbers he put up but in the record books he's number two and that's where he is and that's what i respect and there's nothing wrong with being number two when when you put up the body of work that hank aaron has done he will be missed. What an impact. He's had and the grace and the dignity everything he play with and he was a world series champion and he was a steady as a as a as a get. Never hit fifty home runs. How can a guy play twenty years. Hit all those home runs and never had those big years over fifty. It's it's an amazing amazing accomplishment. And hank aaron will definitely be missed

Families of Negro Leaguers rejoice in MLB's decision to recognize league

"On wednesday. Mlb announced that it was quote unquote elevating negro leaguers. Two major league status within its official historical record which helps explain why google searches for the name. Josh gibson suddenly started spiking. Baseball says it's figuring out how to include negro leagues statistics into its canon of sacred numbers. And there is no resume quite as legendary or as mythical as that of the late josh gibson. The catcher that satchel page once unambiguously deemed the greatest hitter. Who ever lived. So i called up shawn gibson. Josh's great grandson and the executive director of the josh gibson foundation to understand what mlb's decision to elevate his great grandfather means to him. Well first of all. I don't like the word elevating. I think it should be more of a merger because niggly baseball player or major league players as well. So that's first and foremost this. And i want to bid tuesday night as josh gibson's greg grants and i woke up as josh jacobs. His grandson asher to cerebral calls questions about this happened. Literally when people say happen literally overnight it literally happened overnight and to wake up and see that in lobby made the announcement and josh gibson. Now what we consider not just one greatest league baseball players he. He'll be considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time and so for us in our family. It's a great honor. Ona understand josh. What you heard growing up from family from friends about how your great grandfather considered his own career compared to those who had the opportunity who were afforded that opportunity to play in the majors for jars. You know and the other great negro baseball players you know. They knew they were great players. They didn't even know by to tell him that it was just a decision At that time it was in that era. that kennesaw mountain land is denied the opportunity to play in the majors but did not stop him. They barnstorm against a lot of white baseball players. And you know as well as we know. I know is that a lotta times. They beat the white ball players in. So that's something right there. And so when i totally stories just in our family. There's we call josh gibson big josh. 'cause josh gibson junior of course is the sense that you can't say jockey get confused. I wanted to ask you about one of big joshes more famous nicknames. He was called very famously. The black babe. When you hear that sean about your great grandfather how does that make you feel you know. Let's say this bridge. Stevens bakers great grandson. He's one of my good friends. We go back and forth back and forth on this all the time. I didn't know that okay. Tell me about your relationship with him. And what you guys talk about on this regard. That's great so burn. Stevens is bait roof. Great grandson and so we always talked about. You know josh gibson's compared to my grandfather. And i'm like well that's what you but if you ask me about. Bay roof is a white josh gibson. So we go back and forth. Is we always say our people always say Yankee stadium was called the house. Ruth bill in ice t's brent are okay but who hit the furthest home running stadio i give them on that one. Well i mean. I want to even push that. Story further sean. Because i grew up going yankee stadium. He's the only human being to ever hit a fair ball out of the park out of the house. That babe ruth ledley built. I don't want to rub it in his face to. I don't go that far. I just say the furthest rebel. We all know he headed out. The ballpark. we know is over near babe. Ruth kane close no all seriously. I've heard several stories two different stories. I heard it. It's out of the ballpark. Been a heard from some players that hit like the top tier of moammar. So you wrote a piece of the undefeated in august about your grandfather's name being on the mvp trophy. And that may have been unthinkable at one point but now it does feel like there could be momentum towards that. Why is this important to you and your family. Then the peak kinda fell on our lap on. This happened to read an article about terry pendleton barry. Larkin and mike schmidt. Making a case to remove kennesaw Mountains landers name off the mvp award and it gets to okay. Well here at a names that they're considering replacing the name with in his frank robinson branch rickey and go shoot josh gifts literally again on the phone with my board directors. I said listen. We just found herself in a race. Let's see how we can win it so for us. I'm hoping that the vwa taking consideration of this and really think twice when they make a decision to rename this after josh gibson but this mvp war if this may not. The jaw is just about josh gibson. This will carry on the legacy of all the other great players as well. Who were denied the opportunity. So josh gibson is carrying several thousand players on his shoulders but his vp award the page. Family the buck leonard. Cool up a bail family. Turkey stars fan oscar charleston. Family all great players will all celebrate. It'll be named after josh. But every time i speak about this i'll make sure represent all the family members who were denied the opportunity

"The Maison with Kevin nation that was a big sports fan growing up in a kid now was used to hear about an asterik or an asterisk as Some people prefer being added to a sports record when there were changes. There was always an asterisk next to the Home Run records because at first Rodger marris had more games to get 61 home runs than Babe Ruth did to get his sixty and then of course in these steroid off there were astrix added to home run records by Bobby bonds and Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa have a feeling that 2020 is a year is going to be our year of the asterik where everything has an asterik attached to it. I was thinking about sports records this year where you've at home run leaders in baseball while they only had like, you know a quarter of the games they would normally play so naturally wouldn't have as big a numbers. It's kind of weird how everything we have an asterisk next to it, especially when you're talking about people going into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or the Nascar Hall of Fame at this point. They don't know if they're going to be inducted in 2021 or 2022 and we'll those classes be combined and how will it work? I'll try to figure it out right now put a big old a Street next to everything.

"On April Eighth Nineteen seventy four Atlanta Braves outfielder Henry Louis Aaron better known as Hank, his seven hundred fifteenth home run finally breaking the record of the legendary Babe Ruth like everyone else in the country I've been following errands pursuit of the record since the previous season. He played in the Negro Leagues in the Early Nineteen Fifties, and now here he was just two home runs away new but the excitement was undercut by a sense of alarm as errands quest unleashed a torrent of vicious racism baseball is the quintessential American sport. Now, an African American, a dark skinned black man challenging the power, the supremacy of baseball and of white men. That's why the hate mail death threats bomb threats. This was driving a stake at the heart of American culture. Has All this made you more aware than you're a black baseball player? I've never forgotten. Later, he would confess that he was afraid. He wouldn't live long enough to break the record. Then at the start of the nineteen, seventy, four season. All. Of all. Errands triumph was electrified By the end of his Major League career nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six, he had hit a total of seven hundred and fifty five home runs. Errands record would stand for more than thirty years. The braves retired his number and he was elected to the hall of fame. To. This Day Hank Aaron is considered one of baseball's greatest players.

"We're on 78. Every Saturday morning last week we had a caller who asked about Theresa, right, signed letter. Theresa, right, played Lou Gehrig's wife in pride of the Yankees, and I looked up some things on eBay that it's sold. And signed contracts only sold of hers from 25 to $65 an eight by eight saying photo 105 So probably somewhere. In that range for the letter. So it's cool be a cool display, especially made out it was made out to the collar personally, That's pretty neat keeper. Actually, now here's something that did sell for a lot. Pride of the Yankees. Cast signed Baseball, which included Babe Ruth, Gary Cooper and Teresa Wright, sold in a Huggins and Scott February 2013 auction. $3750 for that. That's pretty cool when they think that Babe Ruth was actually in the Lou Gehrig movie, you know what I mean? That's really kind of neat. And Gary Cooper. Was a good Lou Gehrig. Except he looked like a bad athlete. Get those guys looked like they could, and they're trying to play a slugger. That's kind of unusual. Willie sent me. Through Twitter. A direct message, he said. Check this out and collect in the 1996 n ba top 50 player's autographs. He has 22 of the 50. No. He gets most of his autographs by attending N B. A All Star weekend, which is that's an awesome to get him. He says. What do you think the value of this he gets all 50? Well, one thing they saw Huggins. It's a lot really. Depends like Let's say you have Michael Jordan rookie card signed as your signature or a Maravich signed rookie or you have that Will Chamberlain card from upper deck? That was he sign that it wasn't I mean, then that adds a ton of value. But if they're mostly cut signatures with Like base cards in the display. I think Huggins had a top 60 where they added 10 more of their favorites and that sold for 4000 So you know probably 3 4000. And potentially more. If it's a real hard to get those air. Probably three of the biggest from that group. Signature wise where they could be. A lot is Jordan Maravich. And Wilt. I would think, And we have Dennis from Palestinian waiting on line when they have their dentists made. My son is too. Meat from the 97 98 floor, Don Bolles, So they're folding tears, the folding chairs. They're the ones who are right on the floor, okay, And they're also their number in there also says it one year they don't know what game there are from like Canada in ship. So the championship that's cool. They have a letter from the Bulls with them. No, they don't have a letter of the bulls, but they do have on their gold plated. I think saying, what what number it is and what game it's from. Very cool. Now. Bill Huggins with things climbing a little higher from after the last dance with what do you think those might go for? In a Huggins and sky? Jack. I don't know that I've seen it before. But I like the fact that they've got the The little things attacks to him that say what it is and what game it from Mother. That's very key, and you know things could be I don't know 500 to 1000. I would think, eat some. They're on their worst day and who knows on their best day because with an added to it, I think that there's a lot of potential now a bigger item like that. That's really that ship a ble bill. How How would you work that if a Chicago area guy had a big item, let's say he was even bigger than that. There's We've had lots of items over the years, Tom that I still have a have a few. And in this auction where we work with the consign er and they just need Work with our writing team and our photographer to take pictures and give us details about the item. And then it really we We put that it's available for pickup in the Chicago area effectively. Yeah, or if for some reason A person who wanted Once that ship I mean, the consignment could take it to. Ah. Ah, facility and they will pack it up to chip it foryou, not chief. But The the way underpaid, poured one way or another, like for instance, here, see delivery could handle something like that. Somebody in the Chicago area and then you could do it for sure, if if the buyers in Chicago and the sellers in Chicago Yep. And we have enough resource is where we could get the best possible price in the industry and we will protect it and ship it to the buyer of the auction. Now, Vince, come anyhow. Would somebody get in touch with the air sea delivery, either if they have Something like that. Or let's say somebody today is like I got to get this refrigerator moved to my my son's house like today. How did they get a holy year? See delivery could just simply caused 6305161199. It would be happy to take care of for very good. Anybody in particular they asked for. They asked for you or what? They just call the number you answer. The phone could handle it, but they're certainly welcome to ask for me. Vince Clemente at ear see delivery. Okay. That was some good call. I have a question. Can you guys explain to me what made that Mike Trout card the most expensive card ever like? It's not gold? Is it because it's rare? What made that Ray, why rarity is huge, and over the last couple of years, there's been a lot of big money. Guys who are looking for The best possible card or cards or whatever collectible of the best players, somebody with too much disposable. And I mean, you know when that LeBron card win for a million eight, the high end Honestly, prices that I never imagine, 10 years ago, a newer things that like you knew there was big money on Babe Ruth High grade cards and Honus Wagners tobacco card stuff like that, But the stuff from the last 20 and 30 years how high it's going, There's a whole new market of big money guys making Just big money stuff. So it's good. Like I've got stuff that was in my back room that five years ago. It wasn't valueless, but it was just sitting in the back room. Some of that stuff. You get that grated now and it can be Over 1000 per card, and it's just amazing how hot some things have gotten it. It's a whole new market this whole 2020 You just 2020 is the perfect example of a year. Obviously just living that you have to go with the flow and and adjust to what's going on. But In business You just have to. I mean, my store is doing really well, but it's You won't even know it's the same store from a year ago. I get products in from The card Cos I'm tightly allocated. I hardly get any and the restock prices they're so high. I don't even re stack on things anymore. I mean, If I made it A This is one thing that I don't change when I think something is too high price to make it worth selling it in the store that if I have to pay extra get it that I have to sell it. Then I don't get it. I'd rather not have it and I'm doing fine with that. I mean some of the prices on boxes of things Eric are just like Through the roof and brand new products. It's really It's been an incredible year. Now. Now, Vince for Air Sea delivery. How have you had to adjust like, how is that changed your businesses here? Well, I think some of the bigger stuff with the truck work cutout went down. But yet the medical we do a lot of turnout. Maintain levels of that increased show, and some of the bigger stuff is coming back. Slowly. But surely so. You know, any time you can stay open and do okay, I think especially in this economy right now. You're doing okay. So work, Rachel. Well, if you do have something you need delivered contact Vince commenting at ear, See? Delivery? I'm demand delivery. They literally could come into somebody needed a refrigerator delivered today..

And I remember reading it even call my mall shared it with her on the phone. It made me feel really good. But yeah, you don't just hand that stuff out. And then it means more when you do it much of that. I have memories roadholding about that my last book. It's like, hey, like, if you're always tell people are good. They can't really trust you if you say, they're good. They go to public speech. And I got I was good. But if you them all the time at everything in there, really, not how do they don't even believe that. Anyway, it's good. So don't tell you are amazing. What else right? I'm on a diet. Don't tell you. Okay. Kids look up to you. And they look to you to feel good about themselves. So if you don't like your body, you're setting them up to have body issues that said Porsche control healthy eating and exercise all good things to talk about. But just not like, I'm dieting, and I fully support this because I've even read books later in life like stuff, if you ever dieted as a teenager, it affects you way, later in life than it wouldn't another ways and sometimes a lot of people with eating disorders and different things. It's because they started dieting too young because their moms dieted like we up in a Weight Watchers generation and some of my issues come from my mom being like a Weight Watchers person. Anyway, nothing washers. Also, leave me alone. I say. But we should look for Jim gentler way to say stuff, especially with kids. Maybe something like I need some meat time right now can accomplish the same thing. And it's less likely to hurt their feelings are guilty to leave me alone alone. I'll just say like stuff, I regret also say stuff like like, you're annoying. Say that one too. Like me alone. Putting it we need to be more kind. Sometimes it's up to regret things.

And now another blockbuster entitled the big fella Babe Ruth and the world he created from HarperCollins books, which is earned for the Seymour medal award awarded annually by the society of American baseball research sabre and a nomination for the biography of the year from the national book, Critics Circle, here's the Babe Ruth of biographers. Jane? Lady Jane, great to have you on the show. Jane, this is an extraordinary work of scholarship. It took eight years encompass more than two hundred fifty interviews for a subject that so much has been written about throughout history. Making this a quite a challenge. And this guy was on your radar fruit for years for decades. Yeah. I started out believe it or not is early in the eighties and nineties wanting to write a novel about him because I figured that was the only way you could inhabit the caricature that he had become, you know, bandied leg big chested guy that everybody thought he was always, of course, as you know, he was why came to the Red Sox. He was a kind of dude it nineteen fourteen. But what happened is that the ability to research and dig back into history and to basically rewrite history changed with the digital revolution. And so I was able to find in documents on its state archives at a newspaper records the story about his childhood that had never been told. And a lot of you set aside, you sideline a lot of mythology about him, for example that he was an orphan. Yeah. There were two conflicting and completely irreconcilable. This was that he was an orphan the other was that he was an incorrigible meaning a boy who had to be sent away by the courts to be reformed at a school called St Mary's industrial school on the western edge of Baltimore City. And neither of those was true. But those mis prospered in the absence of him having anything to say on on the matter. He would get angry when people called him and offered and say, no, no, no, I had parents. But he never went further than that. And the truth is that his parents were divorced which was something you didn't brag about or you didn't have Barbara Walters or dice player minutes. Offer. You a guests. Shot to go explain and and elicit sympathy for what was basically a Dickensian childhood. So his parents were divorced. His father accused his mother of being both an adulterer at an alcoholic. He kicked her out at nineteen o six custody of the kids, and basically that sealed little Georgia's fate because his father had no interest or time for him and sent him loss to live at the at Saint Mary's industrial school, which is run by a lay order of Catholic brothers called as a very brothers. You got to sources about the baby that no one had before. Well, again, I it was because you're able to find things now in documents that my very able predecessors couldn't have found for example, the the divorce of George route senior and Kate schamberger Reuss was it was made news and the Baltimore in Baltimore papers is in the Baltimore Sun in may nineteen o six, but you'd have had to read, you know, microfiche for hours weeks months in order to find that item since there was no there was no wave click a mouse and say, you know, give me everything Georgia Georgia's senior where now it just pops up in front of your. Three and astonishing gift that you received from the cyber God's back late. Babe Ruth became Babe Ruth incorporated in here. In your book. We meet a failed newspaper cartoonist in adman named Christy Walsh, who created the template for the modern celebrity athlete. How did they meet in one thousand nine hundred twenty one Kristie wells? Well, Christy Walsh was a master is really the original Jerry Maguire, and he was a master of spin. And damage control words that didn't exist in in nineteen twenty one. But apparently, and this is according to his nephew, Richard. He was so desperate. Having just lost his job in in a car ad agency that he found out where babe was staying and climbed up the fire escape. Cold opened the window of his room found him in bed with a blonde climbs through the open window slapped him on a button and said, I want to represent you. Wow. Who is the kind of moxy that Babe Ruth. I think would've appreciated also the fact that he was offering him for his ghost-written stories columns that would appear in papers around the country and most predominantly in New York, you know, ten times what he had received before. But by nineteen twenty seven year, he hits the sixty home runs because it Kristie Walsh. He's making more money off the field. And he is on it. Yeah. He was the model for modern celebrity. I mean, Walsh really was visionary. And in Ruth he had a guy who was in every sense of the word game. If you said, they please go, you know, hold a lobster on national lobster day. He'd do it. If he sees hold a dead. Turtle. He'd do it you pose with anyone and anything that would, you know, broaden his appeal and his image and Walsh was smart enough to. Physician him as the first really major spokesperson. You know that he he did more in nineteen in the nineteen twenties. And Peyton Manning is doing that. It's hard to believe because Payton's on every commercial. We're with Jane Levy who has written another blockbuster. The big fella Babe Ruth in the world. He created from HarperCollins books, and and as part of the celebrity janey takes on Commissioner Landis, who takes exception to the fact that he's endorsing everything and bay feels that he has a right to make a living after the season. Yeah. He one of the things that surprised me. The most about him was how really well-spoken and forthright. He was about players writes back at a time when they had none. So one of the ways that these guys made money in the off season was to do barnstorming tours and everybody did them. But of course, Babe Ruth did them bigger and better than anyone else. And there is a crazy rule on the books that said that if you had played in the World Series, you couldn't barnstorm because. The people who ran baseball back then were dimwitted about marketing and did not understand that it was to their advantage for Babe Ruth to go out into the countryside the game and promote the game to people who remember there's no radio. They can't hear it. They can't see it. Right. And Babe Ruth said, you know. Well, gee, I think I have a right to make a living doing what I do best. And by the way, I think what we're doing is great for baseball Landis who was busy trying to consolidate his power as the first Commissioner in the fall of twenty one and who has his own problems because there are investigations have him in congress because he won't give up his job on the on the federal bench in Chicago. You know, makes a big case out of this and says if you go, you know, you're you're you're gonna be fine. You're going to be suspended Ruth tests him and does anyway. And of course, he was. Finding suspended. He lost his World Series money. And he was suspended for a quarter of the twenty two season. How out of balance Jane is the popular perception of the bay with the reality. You know, I think that it's. It's so. Like, so many other mess. It's a matter of degree as you point out. So yeah, he overate. Yeah. He drank too, much beer. Yes. He availed himself of all the pleasures of flesh. But remember when he got out of Saint Mary's, this guy who is supposed to be this wild, man. The kid who was supposed to run amok on the waterfront of Baltimore. His first instinct was to get married so nineteen fourteen when he gets out of St Mary's at age nineteen it signs with the Baltimore Orioles. Minor league team is sold to the Red Sox. He meets a waitress Helen Helen Woodford who become selling Reuss, and he gets married. His first instinct was not to go nuts. But to try to give himself the family. He never had a sure it the marriage didn't work out he discovered that. She was. Sixteen. He was nineteen. He didn't know how to be a husband. He didn't know how to be a father. That's hardly surprising. But again, his first instincts for to try to create what he'd never had as. Early in the book you have in in our remaining moments. Jane Levy early in the book, you have almost a full page of nicknames. Do you do you think fans have any understanding of how overwhelming his celebrity was in his time? No. And that's really probably what I was trying to do. And I found thirty thirty eight more of them by the way since since I wrote the book. No, there was no way to capture the bigness of him. And so sports writers of the day. And remember sportswriting was just coming into the fullness of tabloid journalism and they're competing for take to get the best of him in the most from him. And they can't find a word with all those things put together they're still not enough big enough to encompass how big he was. He was a revolutionary, Ed. Reinvented baseball. He took it don't hands for away from the micro managers like John McGraw waited who hated Jack done for selling for selling him to the Red Sox and not giants, by the way. He took the game out of their hands, and remade it with his two very very large positive fifty four ounce back, and he he reinvented how how players were thought of that. He created the notion of players entertainers who should be remunerated not just for the balls. He hit outta ballparks. But for the people he brought into them, and he barnstorming against negro leaguers, which was it. He's not the only one to do it. But he was Babe Ruth. And so his sanction of their play and his his willingness to articulate that what she did in the newspapers I spoke volumes. And I know the answer is no, here's no way. You you. You a modern reader can understand how really big he was let me ask you in the in the remaining moments that we have writers back in his day were in close proximity. The babe. And that's all there was as you said. There was no radio. There was no television. It was newspapers, and they brandished his fame and yet there was so much. They did not right about that. They I witnessed the irony is they were as close to him and had such access to him. Again, a word use today, but not in use then, but they didn't write most of what they knew about him personally because everything that was you know, off the field was considered absolutely for boat. And there was a kind of clubhouse omerta, and they just didn't write anything personal. And so while they knew him very, well, they didn't convey that in print which is the opposite of today where the mandate for reporters to write every thought and personal item. And everybody has a phone. For you. Go in our remaining, thirty seconds. What's next for? Jane Levy, you're gonna write the we've had Mickey Mantle. We've had said he Colfax we've had Babe Ruth. I know that's a trilogy. Anything else coming? You got an idea for me it. We'll talk about it off the air. Right now. I mean, Arizona doing book book festivals and collecting this seem more mental which I'm thrilled. Receiving congressional. I'm I'm thinking about a couple of things. But if I say it out loud, you know, what happens now..

"And then all of a sudden, you realize wilt did it sixty five consecutive games. Why is we don't recognize will Chamberlain the way we recognize Babe Ruth that that they're you know, there's like they're not real a mythical figure, but we recognize the greatness of Babe Ruth. We forget about will Chamberlain. I think whether it's fair or not one thing we say about wilt is that he he was almost like a character out of Gulliver's travels. Right. Like, he's this super sized athletes, whereas everybody else around him outside of Bill. Russell was a smaller player playing almost a different sport. I think we are are are looking at will as this. This is being overpowering. Whereas we look at Babe Ruth is being maybe more skilled. It's I don't know if I agree with it. I mean, I love I agree with that much either. I think we'll accomplishments personally should be. I I'm with you. I think we'll sit college mentor. But I you know, when when this conversation comes up, it's like a will was this seven foot one monster. And how many other guys we're able to defend him on your physical level that seems to be the argument? Yeah. But same with shack. Nobody could come close to his size, but they were more. I mean, there were more guys check it. You ain't gonna lie guys that were not check size, but comparable. Then you go back to the days of wealth. I mean, how many guys were even close to physically overpower? We're talking about Russell being as peer Russell like six nine like, you know, with a great defensive instincts skills, but he was nowhere near as physically biggest we'll either, but you had guys who were big Nate Thurman was very good defensive player while Bellamy had guys who were similar size or at least close. I would. But I don't know. I just feel like we we look at Wilton go. Oh, I don't even know how categorize him. What he did? You know, in the fact that we don't have video when he scored one hundred points in a calf. Did it really happen? You know, it's one of those where did he did we really land on the moon type thing, and we have video of that? I mean, mo- most people only don't we'll hundred point gain from that. You know, that that piece of paper held hold on me on the internet where everybody just kind of changes it with Ben Simmons goes for one. They raise the two zero one offensive faith on it. I mean, honestly like most people know that we'll did it what they don't have any context of. How did it? Are you buying into the rockets now this late run beating Golden State again without harden when we get to the playoffs L I'm buying in not to say that they're they're they're going to win. But I think they're back on that level that they were lashed the defensive numbers. Trouble me, they're not a very good defensive team right now. Whereas last year they were in the top half. Leaked defensively. But you know, forget hard forget, Paul. The reason this team is back on a championship radar are those bargain-basement additions. They've made dad I mean, Kenneth Reid is giving them like sixteen in pen was stapled to that. Nets mentioned has been a shell himself. The last years. Austin rivers was let go basically by two teams this year. And now he's giving them thirty three minutes per game. This team had a bad off a lost a Reza Elorza by moot? Say they lost some of their defensive identity, you know, in the process in getting for reading rivers, some of the other guys that they've been able to grow. They're starting to get some of that swagger back. So I think you can count on Chris Paul and James harden being great if they're healthy. But you're now able to count on the role players being a lot better than they were at the start of the season to visit with you. Chris safe travels. Thanks for joining us. You don't even want to talk about the Celtics. I'm disappointed in that debt. I assumed it'd be some Celtic related conversation. If you're a betting man is Kyrie Irving with the Celtics next year. Yes. Five years hundred.

"Compare anybody to Babe Ruth, obviously. But the best way I could some of them up here in Boston in two thousand nineteen in you, tell me if I'm wrong on this on the field. Tom Brady off the field. Rob gronkowski. Does that make sense? Yeah. You remember though that my dad was a waterboy for the New York football giants. So I'm I'm hurt in cowboy here. I inherited his love of the big blue. Yeah. I would say that's pretty that's that's good. No one's come up with anything as good as that. No one's come up with too many chapters that start as good as yours dozen chapter three Babe Ruth swept into the Pennsylvania station, either with or without two ladies of the night, prominently clinging to his arm. He had or had not spent the night before and their company did or did not Pat them on their dare in tip them a few simply calling out to a palimony assembled scribes couple beauts. So isn't that part of the thing about Babe Ruth is this just some of these stories? It doesn't even matter if they're true. They just became part of the Ruth easel ethos. It's that's exactly right. I mean, you talk about what it means to be larger than life hill. You know, so many years later, and he would have been one hundred twenty four today, by the way, so many years after. His death. So many years after he did all these things people still arguing was did. He call the shot. Vide- knock call the shot that he show up with the ladies of the night that he not, and you know, he engenders that kind of interest even today, and that that astonishes me he astonishes me by the time I got done and this took eight years, you know, I I hold a major league record by the way now for most consecutive nights spent alone with Babe Ruth. Than either of his wives because he had to leave them sometimes and just want to do other times. But he was thoroughly idiosyncratic. Well, let me one more Jane for you. And by the way, the wise one of the wives meets a horrible death in Watertown, Massachusetts, which I didn't even know about that's in the book. So we'll just leave it there. I guess my last one for you as you mentioned one hundred and twenty five years ago today will you were on major league baseball network today for the first time ever, we video of Babe Ruth that. We didn't nobody had seen before quickly. Explain that video well in nineteen twenty seven a car dealer. Very prominent wealthy guy named Glenn Thomas decided to take Babe Ruth fishing. Lots of rich guys like the host him and take him places. He wanted to go or provide him with women or booze or whatever this guy took him fishing. And it was January twenty second nineteen twenty seven as already promised sixty home runs to Jake Rupert. Even though he has no contract and wouldn't sign one for another month and a half. And so the the video was taken by this guy's video. Well, it's not video. It's it's filmed by cinematographer who we brought along anti brought along a PR guy any room along a still photographer because again, it's the beginning of the promotion of athletes and that their endorse. Reuss would endorse the Studebaker in exchange for these nice trips. You know, that's all beginning in America PR marketing endorsements it all goes back to Babe Ruth. And then at the end of twenty of the seven barnstorming tour that you referred to this same guy hosts, Gary and Reuss at a hunting club in Orange County. It's now the site of Los Alamitos racetrack and the video they keep saying that the film shows Babe Ruth passed out dead drunk in a duck blind guy. The Studebaker guy said well after the first night you decided he would spend the second with Garrick because he was afraid routes would shoot him in the middle of the night. That's I I said last one last one for you in the history of the United States has there ever been a man or woman for that matter that better represented a decade than there is of Babe Ruth in the roaring twenties. Now. I don't think. So I mean, what didn't he live up to? But then Jane as you well know when the roaring twenties ended the war the country was done with the roaring twenties. Which is why baseball basically, turn their back on Babe Ruth, babe. Ruth's and is awful. Well, I don't think they turned their back on him. Then in fact, at the when the after the crash into in twenty nine where he's still riding high instill earning more money as he notably said than the president. I think he carried the country on his back. He was a reminder that we were still great. And that we still had clout and could do amazing things that nobody else did. I think they turned their back on him in after he retired in June nineteen thirty five because his reputation. Well, I might add for his recklessness and his appetites, and you know, his lack of self control was held against him. And it was it was horrifying for him. Because it. Replicated the abandonment by his parents said he suffered as a child and now baseball which he thought of really as a as his family and the fans as his family had turned their back on him to Jane. I've thoroughly enjoyed talking to you. I really enjoyed your book. You don't need my help to sell your New York Times bestseller. But I'm telling you people. The big fella Babe Ruth is one of those guys we just we should know him, and we should know his story in your book captured a James so job. Well done. Thank you so much. And you know, he hated the D H just in case anybody wants to know about is actually asked about an early chance to do a D H it he just scoffed at it. This is in twenty nine he couldn't believe the absurdity of doing such a thing for the guy was two point two four something lifetime ERA. I mean, the guy could pitch the guy could play right? It could do anything on a ball field. Jane, Levy, great talking to you. Enjoy the rest of the burst. Are you gonna have a hot dog and a beer and honor the babe today? Oh, you bet. Absolutely. I might have twelve hotdogs in honor of the bay. Just don't get off a train with or without do ladies of the evening. That's going too far. Okay. Not my style. Problem. Jane, thanks for spending some time with us here and W R K L.

But if you're say, what is bear best year that you experience for you, could you. Yeah. Is there one that stands out or they all just go together?

And he's and bays and Killebrew Babe Ruth, these people that you just you know, the greatest in the game. I mean, those things you never forget. I think when he hit three seventy was just as impressive because he walked two hundred times and you got to pitches they hit the game. And and when he got a pitch to hit he put it in playing gotta hit. I mean, those are amazing things. But I think. Certainly the home runs will stay with you forever. 'cause there were such.

"Because that means when the first in eighty three years since they've done this nineteen thirty. Six there's been like Babe Ruth is in the first ballot. He wasn't unanimously voted there were eleven guys at said didn't hit enough home runs seven fifteen the most that wasn't broken. Why wouldn't he give out it in by everybody? I don't think it was. Was people years later to some people Jeff he didn't do enough on the baseball diamond. I'm just I'm speculating. He didn't hit home runs for them. Maybe he didn't do enough basis. Maybe didn't pitch enough. Perfect games. I don't know. What did he do? Just most like on a name in baseball was like Babe Ruth, not for me. Not not hall of Famer. You're okay. Thank God, you're laughing about this MAC, you know. But I mean who said that we'll writer. He was like this. Yep. Hall favor. Yeah. Hall of Famer who really other names on that vailab, by the way. I'll look it up because he was like. Oh, yeah. Jimmy jenkins. Yep. Hick their ovaries. Yep. Babe ruth. No, he didn't do enough. They just seem like it's nothing. I just wanna know who those people voted for if they didn't vote for have about can you imagine Michael Jordan, not being a first of all inductees included Tuykov, babe roots, honest, Wagner. Okay. And the others are like Walter Johnson pitcher, national or Christie, Washington. What were they not the senators things, washing senators senators and also Christy Mathewson, those are some freaking phenomenal names. I it's the first ballots. But the thing is to who didn't vote. So guys to give off all of those guys didn't get into unanimously. So even tighter off. Sewing and also on his Wagner's was ignored Tuykov. I could understand that because he pissed a lot of people off though. Was not a nice person. He was supposedly supposed I don't think. It's supposedly that do definitely not gonna bash from what do you mean? He got into a lot of crap. I on the fights players aid managers hate him will documented I mean, we didn't we weren't there. It was well before our time. But that dude was real rivalry. Sam Crawford speaks for itself that do the real piece of work is the basal absolutely Naser V. They're absolutely. But it's really truly amazing. How these guys were not unanimously inducted when they had the careers. They did. But also there's also a couple of guys we also say all sorts ain't than I get the hall of fame like Willie Mays or even. There's one guy that I think should have been unity. But it'd be he's the most probably most influential inspirational player in MLB history. And that's Jackie Robinson because everyone has his number retired. No one's allowed to wear that number anywhere. Except for one day everyone wears his number. And that guy was voted. I understand what Jackie Robinson was voted in hundred percent has intent no racism. That's what I meant has its due to radio. Yeah. -absolutely because it was still a time where there was a sixty. There is some people are so uncomfortable. Explain Liam sixties was a civil rights era. So true. If we think about the history of this country, it took until the sixties until people of color actually became real citizens of this country like without it took that long. Yeah. And that may instill political. No, we're not getting political. That's that's it's just history. I know that makes sense that Jack was one hundred percent because all it takes his one or two people to be like, yeah. I like that kind of. It's really like if it was like. But again, he's worth the he is the most influential player Bruce will- who the heck wasn't voting for these guys for about what they okay how Ted Williams? How is he not? How is Willie Mays? Ted Williams can hit a curve. Was Willie millimeters around that time also that he didn't. He was good at everything. But he wasn't great. And we say that because he was great at everything I'm playing devil's advocate here who else. Over. Okay. Sadie colefax can throw this right in. Yes, they're racist. Now. Yes. Eighty Kovacs is in the most out there. Out. There is like, you know, what don't prefer that type Lou Garrick explained that one retired to you. Okay. That's really mean. All right. All right.

And for the first time ever a one hundred percent voting unanimous vote for Mariana Rivera to be in the hall of fame. He's the first person ever to get hundred percent, which seems absolutely ridiculous. Yes. Because that means when the first in eighty three years since they've done this nineteen thirty. Six there's been like Babe Ruth is in the first ballot. He wasn't unanimously voted there were eleven guys at said didn't hit enough home runs seven fifteen the most that wasn't broken. Why wouldn't he give out it in by everybody? I don't it was people years later to some people Jeff he didn't do enough on the baseball diamond. I'm just I'm speculating. He didn't hit home runs for them. Maybe he didn't do enough basis. Maybe didn't pitch enough. Perfect games. I don't know. What did he do? Just on a name in baseball was like Babe Ruth. No, not for me. Not not hall of Famer. You're okay. Thank God, you're laughing about this MAC, you know. But I mean who said that we'll writer. He was like this. Yep. Hall favor. Yeah. Hall of Famer who really other names on that vailab, by the way. I'll look it up because he was like. Oh, yeah. Jimmy jenkins. Yep. Hick their ovaries. Yep. Babe ruth. No, he didn't do enough. They just seem like it's nothing. I just wanna know who those people voted for if they didn't vote for have about can you imagine Michael Jordan, not being a first of all inductees included Tuykov, babe roots, honest, Wagner. Okay. And the others are like Walter Johnson pitcher, national or Christie, Washington. What were they not the senators things, washing senators senators and also Christy Mathewson, those are some freaking phenomenal names. I it's the first ballots. But the thing is to who didn't vote. So guys to give off all of those guys didn't get into unanimously. So even of sewing and also on his Wagner's was no Tuykov. I could understand that because he pissed a lot of people off though. Was not a nice person. He was supposedly supposed I don't think. It's supposedly that do definitely not gonna bash from what do you mean, he got into a lot of crap on the fights players managers hate him will documented I mean, we didn't we weren't there? It was little before our time. But that dude was real rivalry. Sam Crawford speaks for itself that do the real piece of work is the basal absolutely as IRS V. They're absolutely. But it's really truly amazing. How these guys were not unanimously inducted when they had the careers..
