4. Babe Ruth Hits 1st Ever All-Star Game HR

Babe Ruth hit 714 career home runs and recognized by everyone as the greatest player in baseball history.

The Babe changed the game from a dead ball era and rang in the live ball era by hitting more home runs in some seasons than entire teams.

The 1933 MLB All-Star game featured many future Hall of Fame players, including Lou Gehrig, Left Gomez and Jimmie Fox, but the only player every fan wanted to see was Babe Ruth.

Babe Ruth came up in the third inning with two men on base and took Bill Hallahan deep to stake the American League to a 3-0 lead.  The American League never looked back and took the first All-Star Game by a score of 4-2.

The Babe had plenty of memorable home runs in his career.  Most of them coming in games that counted, but this one home run that did not count just showed how Babe Ruth knew how to capture a moment.


The greats of the game always do.
