This Day in Babe Ruth History: July 11th, 1914

Hey Babe Ruth fans, in a year of many Bambino milestones, today is a particularly important day in Ruth history. Today marks the 100th anniversary of Babe Ruth’s first appearance in Major League baseball. In early July of 1914, the cash-strapped Baltimore Orioles of the International League sold Ruth, along with

pitchers Ernie Shore and Ben Egan, to the Red Sox. 19-year old rookie Ruth reported to the Red Sox on July 11th, 1914, and took the mound the same day as a pitcher against William Mitchell of the Cleveland Indians. Ruth’s first outing was a success with a 4-3 win. Unbeknownst to the spectators at Fenway Park looking on that day, it was the first in an amazing baseball career and a legend was born.

In recognition of this year’s significant milestone, the Ruth Family chose this year to launch their food product line of family recipes of sauces and condiments, including an amazing relish, as well as a marinade based on Babe’s original hunting recipe.
