On October 1, 1932 Babe Ruth hit his "Called Shot" home run against the Chicago Cubs in game 3 of the World Series.
The Baseball Home of Fame has help perpetuate the so called Called Shot by Babe Ruth by having a painting by Robert Thomas clearly showing the Babe making the called shot. The homer by Ruth remains disputed as Babe Ruth refused to either confirm it discredit it. Reliable sources such as Lou Gehrig who was on deck said the homer definitely a called homer. The Cub's pitcher at the time, Charlie Root, adamantly says it was not.
October 1, 1932 in Game 3 of the World Series.
Babe Ruth's called shotThe Legionary "called shot" is when Babe Ruth pointed to centerfield during an at bat in game 3 of the 1932 World Series at Wrigley Field in Chicago, and then hit a home run over the centerfield fence. Some baseball historians debate to this day if the "called Shot" event ever happened in the way that legion has recorded it. There is no debate that Babe Ruth was pointing his finger, and he did hit a home run but, the reason why he was pointing his finger or if he was actually pointing to the fence and state that he was going to hit a home run on the next pitch is.
when babe Ruth called his shot in game 3 against Chicago cubs
Yes! He did call his shot. That's what I think. It the biggest mystery in sports history so some people say yes like me, but some say no which really ruins the excitement for me........yes, he did call the shot at Wrigley Field :)
