Most of episode 4, called "A Nat'l Heirloom", chronicles the life of Babe Ruth, including his childhood ages. George (later referred to as Babe), was as much out of control as a child as he was as an adult. So much so, that his parents sent him a reform school/orphanage, where he stayed most of the time until he was 19. But he became very good at baseball, even at an early age. He became America's most famous baseball player. He played professionally from 1914-1935.

This episode also covers the beginning of baseball's farm system by Branch Rickey, and the sad death of one of baseball's greats, Christy Mathewson, known as the Christian Gentleman
