The Legend Comes to Life

By Robert W. Creamer
Narrated by Tom Parker / 13 hours 16 minutes

He was the biggest man baseball has ever produced. Babe Ruth transcended the sport that brought him fame, money, and adulation, moving beyond the limits of baselines and outfield fences into the mainstream of American life. In this extraordinary biography, Robert W. Creamer uncovers the complex and captivating man behind the legend. He presents the truth behind famous Ruth stories such as the "called shot" homers and the home run for a dying child, analyzes the astounding statistics with detailed information on specific games, and describes Ruth's varied, often volatile, relations with those around him, from fellow players to fans, friends, and reporters. From Babe Ruth's early days in a Baltimore orphanage, to the glory days with the Yankees, to his final years, Creamer has drawn an indelible portrait of a true sports hero.
