A big Babe Ruth Fan!

"He was a circus, a play and a movie, all rolled into one,” said teammate Lefty Gomez. “Kids adored him, Men idolized him. Women loved him. There was something about him that made him great.” Babe Ruth was more than a great baseball player, he was an American hero who became a legend and an icon. Long after his last home run, his name has come to signify greatness and strength."

August 16, 2008. New York City did a Proclamation declaring it Babe Ruth Day!
I was doing the very thing my grandfather would have loved...I was in the Bronx for the United Youth  Baseball League Inc. I was accepting a plaque for my Grandfather for all his work with the youth. I was also signing the newest Ray Negron book  " The Greatest Story Never Told: The Babe & Jackie".  The singing group Menudo was on hand!
