This Day in Babe Ruth History: May 6th

On May 6th, 1917, 21-year old pitcher Babe Ruth of the Boston Red Sox out-dueled pitching legend, Walter Johnson of the Washington Senators. The final score was 1-0 in favor of the Sox, with Babe driving in the only run. Over the course of their pitching match-ups, Ruth won 6 games and Johnson won 3. Meaning no disrespect to “The Big Train” Johnson, but this is just another example of just how amazing a baseball player Babe was!
