...Babe Ruth hit the final three HR's of his illustrious career, #712, #713, and #714. Ruth, then on his last legs (literally as well as figuratively), then playing for the Boston Braves, hit them vs. the Pittsburgh Pirrates. The last one was a prodigious blast that cleared the RF roof of Forbes Field and was an estimated 500 feet. The Babe then retired on 6/ 2/35.

This gets me thinking of the great history of this game and how a man like Barry Bonds is going to ruin it all.

He may taint it, but nobody can ruin it all.

I've heard that story before. It's part of baseball lore. Bonds can't take away.
