The Babe Turns 116

One hundred sixteen years ago today, a kid was born in Baltimore. He played six years for the Boston franchise in the American League—primarily as a starting pitcher. He won two-thirds of the games he started for the Red Sox—posting a 2.19 ERA and a 1.142 WHIP.

Oh, and he collected three World Series rings in those six years—even though rings weren't given out back then. In 15 years with the hated Yankees, he won the World Series four times. So, he won it all 50% of his time with Boston; 26.6% of his time with New York. 'Nuf ced. Happy Birthday, Babe!
