Because he is a part of history. Just like we learn in school about Columbus and Henry VIII and World War I because they are part of history, Babe Ruth is relevant because he is a large part of baseball history due to the records he set, the image he portrayed, and the era that he played. He will be relevant as long as baseball exists as will Jackie Robinson, Lou Gehrig, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Cy Young, and countless others because of the same reasons. Even Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds will be relevant 75 years from now because of what they did. It may not be the type of relevance that makes baseball look good but they will still be talked about.
