Babe Ruth

George Herman "Babe" Ruth, Jr. was an American baseball outfielder and pitcher who played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball from 1914 to 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs, slugging percentage, runs batted in, bases on balls, and on-base plus slugging; his career slugging percentage and OPS records still stand today. He was one of the first five inductees into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936. ... more on Wikipedia
