Today In Sports History August 11th: Babe Ruth Hits Number 500

Today in sports history on August 11th, 1929 Babe Ruth hit home run number 500 for the New York Yankees. No player in baseball would ever get to 500 again until Jimmie Fox in 1940. Babe Ruth to me is still the greatest baseball to player to ever live. He was much before his time. The power, the celebrity, etc. I do wonder if it wasn’t for Babe Ruth would the Yankees be what they are today as a global brand?
