Timberdoodle's review Learn more
George Herman Ruth, Jr. (February 6, 1895 – August 16, 1948) has been named the greatest baseball player in history but his childhood was not trouble free. When he was eight years old, his father sent him to St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys, a reformatory and signed custody over to the Catholics who ran the school. During his time in St. Mary's, Ruth also became a qualified shirt maker. But it was Brother Matthias Boutlier, father figure in Ruth's life and the Head of Discipline at St. Mary's, who first introduced Ruth to the game of baseball. Ruth was the first player to hit 60 home runs in one season and his lifetime total of 714 home runs at his retirement in 1935 was a record for 39 years.
