About Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum
Everybody's gotta start somewhere, even The Great Bambino himself, Babe Ruth. The birthplace of George Herman Ruth Jr., The Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum celebrates the origins of The Sultan of Swat. Born February 6, 1895 at 216 Emory St., the Babe got his first professional contract with the Baltimore Orioles before moving on to found and later out-pace the 500 Home Run Club. By the end of his career, Ruth had smashed a grand total of 714 homers, a number surpassed only by two other players. Visitors to the historic house can also see rare artifacts, including Ruth's 1914 rookie card, a Catholic rosary he carried with him throughout most of his life, a scorecard from his first Orioles game, and one of the bats he used in 1927, the year Babe hit 60 home runs. Meanwhile, "The Star Spangled Banner in Sports" commemorates the bicentennial of the War of 1812 with a 3D-projected film.
