Baseball Player

The Resume

    (February 6, 1895-August 16, 1948)
    Pitched for the Boston Red Sox
    Played outfield for the New York Yankees
    Credited with saving the game of baseball
    First player to hit 60 home runs in a single season (1927)
    First player to retire with a record 714 home runs

Why he might be annoying:

    Famous for the 'curse of the bambino': The Red Sox won 5 world series titles before Ruth was traded to the no championship Yankees. Since then, the Yankees won 25 titles and Red Sox 1.
    He drank to excess.
    In 1961, Roger Maris broke his home run record, so the record keepers put the famous asterisk next to Maris' name, to keep Babe in the record books.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He saved the game of baseball.
    Attendance dropped after the black sox scandal, then got traded to the Yankees and people came out to see him hit home runs.
    Kids love him.
    He is left handed.
