11 July 17

103 years ago today, 19-year-old George Herman “Babe” Ruth played his first major league baseball game, as a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox. He would go on to greatness with hitting home runs, setting a single-season record (60 HR) in 1927 that would last for 34 years. His career total 714 home runs, ending in 1935, lasted as the record until 1974. On my tie, Snoopy has just smacked the ball for a very long hit -- maybe a home run!
