Babe Ruth
Guy Lochhead, 21/05/10
Iconic American baseball player Ruth was one of the most prolific hitters, and became a media icon in the 1920s, appearing in many films, TV and radio programmes. He was a showman and publicity hound off the pitch. He was married from 1914-1926, but his numerous affairs and infidelities ended that relationship. He started the Babe Ruth Foundation for disadvantaged children. He was a ‘bit of a character’ or whatever, which I’m sure has contributed to his legendary status now. I don’t feel any need to include him.
