Did You Know?
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would only have been credited with a single, and been ineligible to play in the rest of the game on the basis of having been replaced by a Pinch Runner.
