Re:The Babe And I
I'd seen the picture before but had never read the story. THANKS! Dead at 53; I was only 8 months old then; how tragicly young 53 seems now.
To guage their cultural awareness, at the beginning of each semester I give my economics students a random list of "famous names" to identify: e.g., Franklin Roosevelt, Charles A. Lindbergh, Thomas Edison, Mick Jagger, Tiger Woods, John Lennon, Barack Obama, Muhammad Ali, etc.
Babe Ruth is the only name that everybody knows!
So the Babe still lives. And he holds one record that will NEVER be broken: he alone hit more home runs in a single season than any other TEAM in baseball! If memory serves, he did that twice. No man, even with all the steroids and "training" in the world, will ever break that record.
May he Rest in Peace and his name be forever known.
