He got the nickname soon after he signed with minor-league Baltimore Orioles at the age of 19 -- at the time, legally a minor. His story is that his fellow players considered him a "babe in the woods" for his naivete; others say he was the team owner's "babe" because of Ruth's young age. The nickname stuck.
His nick name is the "Black Babe Ruth."
In 1914, while living in an orphanage, one of the teachers introduced Ruth to Joe Dunn, owner/manager of the Baltimore Orioles. After watching him pitch, he signed him on and became his legal guardian. When his teammates saw him they nicknamed him 'Jacks newest babe' and it stuck! Bambino in Italian is also babe.
He was George Herman Ruth (1895 - 1948), also nicknames the Great Bambino and American Major League Base Ball player. He became one of the League's most prolific hitters with the New York Yankees. Babe Diedrickson, a great female golfer and all-around athlete, was named after Babe Ruth.
What is a babe? Or sorry, WHO is Babe? There's a billion babes, you know. Like, boyfriends and girlfriends call each other "Babe." And there is a pig called "Babe." And a baby is a longer word for "babe." Okay??
