New Babe Ruth Exhibit at the Hall of Fame

This past weekend, the Baseball Hall of Fame had the grand opening of a significantly revamped Babe Ruth exhibit. Up to this point, the two stars of the game with the most individual focus has been Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth. Given the large collection of Ruth items on hand and considering the 100th anniversary of Babe’s entrance into Major League Baseball, the Hall felt it was time to introduce more of the items to fans. The updated exhibit is almost like a scrapbook that takes you back in time to Babe’s era. It includes more focus on Babe’s personal life, but also displays historically significant items, including the Yankee uniform that Babe wore during his final appearance to Yankee Stadium, as well as the certificate for the American League MVP award.

Amanda Stevens, granddaughter of Julia Ruth Stevens, Babe’s surviving daughter, was on hand for the grand opening. Below is a photo of Amanda (fourth from left), Hall of Famers Cal Ripken (first on left) and Phil Neikro (fifth from left), Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson (far right) and Jane Forbes Clark, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Hall of Fame (third from left), who were all on-hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
