George Herman Ruth, Jr. (1895-1948), also known as "Babe" Ruth and "The Bambino", was an American Major League baseball player with the Boston Red Sox, and more famously, with the New York Yankees. While with the Yankees, the team won four World Series titles, and seven pennants. Ruth was one of the first five players elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, and Yankee Stadium was often referred to as "the house that Ruth built".
