Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Babe Ruth Day

On April 27th 1947, at the behest of Commissioner Happy Chandler, the New York Yankees hosted “Babe Ruth Day”, celebrated in every ballpark in organized baseball in the US as well as Japan, in honour of the man who made the country fall in love with baseball.

Mortally ill with throat cancer, Ruth appeared at Yankee Stadium to thank his former club for the honor. Ruth, gaunt, weak and looking far older than his 51 years, urged the 58,399 packed in - the season’s highest attendance - to truly appreciate “Your national pastime, the only real game I think in the world.”
