Most of Babe Ruth’s records have been broken. In 1961, Roger Maris broke his 34-year old record for many home runs in a season. Maris’ teammate, pitcher Whitey Ford, broke his 43-year old record for most scoreless innings pitched in a World Series when the Yankees dispatched the Reds that year in the post-season. Barry Bonds now holds the record for the majority of homes runs in a season (73), most home runs in a profession (762 and counting), maximum slugging percentage and most intentional walks. No player ever had the impact, both on and off the field, as did the charismatic Babe Ruth. He died of cancer in August 16, 1948. The New York Times headline read, “Babe Ruth/Idol of Countless Boys/Dead.”
