During Babe's Three Home Run Game at the end of his career, a "designated runner" runs the bases from first on the first two home runs. Not only is this historically inaccurate, but inconsistent with baseball rules as well. Had another completed a run around the bases, Ruth would only have been credited with a single, and been ineligible to play in the rest of the game on the basis of having been replaced by a Pinch Runner.

When Ruth buys the farm while still a member of the Red Sox, the seller tells Ruth to "Get those Yankees." There was no big rivalry between the two teams at that time as the Yankees were not really seen as a viable threat to the Red Sox pennant chances. The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry did not really form until sometime after Ruth was sold to the Yankees. See more
