Follow The "60" Baseballs

This is Babe Ruth’s birthplace and now a museum in his honor. It's beautifully restored and has wonderfully done displays inside. I really enjoyed visiting this place and everyone there was really friendly. They have a museum store and do receptions for various types of parties.

At Camden Yards where Babe Ruth's Statue is and look for the very cute baseballs painted on the sidewalk and follow them. They're 60 of them to represent the home runs he hit in 1927 that set a record for home runs in a single season.;-) Thanks Mike;-))

Babe Ruth's Birthplace: A Great Small Museum

Babe Ruth was born just a few blocks from Oriole Park at Camden Yards in 1895 and grew up over his father's saloon which was located smack dab in the middle of what is now centerfield. Since his boyhood home has long since been destroyed, it's his birthplace that gets to be the home of a collection of the Babe's memorabilia. It also has a small section devoted to the history of the Baltimore Orioles, the minor league version of which Babe Ruth pitched for before ascending to the Boston Red Sox.
For those non-Americans reading this, Babe Ruth became famous as a home run hitter for the New York Yankees, eventually setting the record of 60 homers in a season (1927) and 714(1934) in a career -- numbers that held until 1961 and 1974, respectively. He is the only player to ever lead his league in both earned run average and home runs -- he would hae been a Hall of Fame pitcher had he not switched to the outfield in 1919. Despite being dead since 1941, he is perhaps the best known baseball player of all-time.
