Trivia:

Contrary to popular belief, when Ruth was playing for the Boston Braves, the game in which he hit three home runs against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Forbes Field on May 25, 1935 was not his last game in the major leagues. His last major league appearance actually came on May 30, 1935 against the Phillies in Philadelphia. Ruth came to bat only once and grounded out. See more »
