Babe Ruth red Sox

Before he was the home run slugging “Great Bambino” Babe Ruth was a pitcher, a very good pitcher.

In his career “The Babe” went 94-46 with a 2.28 ERA in 163 games. In the World Series Ruth was one of the best ever, pitching a record 29 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings.

In 1920 Ruth was traded from the Red Sox to the New York Yankees and the rest is history. So let’s take a look back at Babe Ruth…the pitcher.
