... Series championships as well. They won four World Series in fact, in 1923, 27, 28, and 32. When Yankee Stadium was built, in the Bronx in 1923, it became known as the House that Ruth Built . Indeed, you can say this man made himself into somewhat of a legend. He was also given many nicknames during his glory years. Probably the most famous being Sultan of Swat . Babe Ruth finished his career with the Boston Braves in 1935, after being released by the Yankees. He signed a one year deal with the Braves. Ruth was told he would manage the team after the year was over. Mid way through the season George found out that he was just being used to draw crowds, but still finished out the season because he was under contract. Ruth dreamed of managing a major league team, but never got that chance because of his wild reputation. In 1948 after two years of heart problems Babe Ruth passed away. He died at 801 p.m. on August 16th at Memorial Hospital at the age of 53. If you wanted to say George Ruth had it made all his life, you could. He made a lot of money, had two great wives and two great children, played the game he loved, partied half his life, and broke all the standing baseball hitting records of his time. But I bet if you were able to ask him today if he felt he had it made, he would probably say no. He did many great things on the field, but you have to remember the only way he became a star was by losing something every child needs, his parents. George Ruth had it all and was every little boys idol, but it didn t come easy.
