Best Answer

Babe Ruth Changed the game of Baseball with his Home run hitting skills. He saved our national past time from ruin. Coming off the The "Black Sox" scandal of 1919 when the World Series was fixed by gamblers, It took the baseball heroics of Babe Ruth to bring the fans focus back to the game. His flamboyant personality, and home run hitting skills made him a larger than life figure that captured the hearts of baseball fans, and helped restore interest in our national past time. Early in his career Babe Ruth was hitting more home runs than some teams. In the 1920's he established himself as a home run hitting machine, and set the standard of modern day home run records.
