George Herman Ruth Jr. was born on February 6, 1895 born to Kate and George Ruth. Originally his mom gave birth to eight children, but six died in infancy. Only him and his sister Mamie survived. As a young boy George didn’t receive as much attention as a regular little boy would need. He didn’t receive much attention because of his parents working their long hard hours to support their family. The first seven years of his life he managed to survive for himself on the dirty crowded streets of Baltimore. He never really heard his parents say that they loved him, and they never really showed it either. On June 13, 1902 George was sent to the St. Marys school for boys. They also gave custody to the Xaverian Brothers of the school.
George often compared the school to a prison, because it had big prison walls that surrounded the whole campus, and it had armed guards at every exit. He only went to see his real parents for short periods of time, and when he did he was always sent
Doctors tried everything but everything they did didn"tmt work. As George and his career began to expand so did his salary. On of his favorite positions was pitcher. People loved Babe so much they declared April 27, "Babe Ruth Day" in every baseball park. He announced that he wanted to retire and become a major league manager. He was like the father George never had. If Babe Ruth was born about 50 years later he would have been a star in many sports. She worked as a model and actress, and she had a daughter Named Julia. Maybe it was because of his rough childhood that he was successful in sports and he also loved children. Later he became interested in another young widow named Claire Hodgson. So he bought him and his wife a house in Massachusetts. The only positive influence he got from St. Baseball was one of the top priorities at the school. Before George came to the Yankees they were not that good of a team, but once he got there he had turned them into championship contenders. Their child Dorothy was eight years old at the time.
