Babe Ruth continues his assault on the record books on this episode of This Day In History.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand tell us about another milestone moment in the career of New York Yankees Hall of Famer, Babe Ruth.
In 1929, Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player in history to hit 500 home runs by launching a Willis Hudlin pitch over the right field wall at Cleveland’s League Park. Ruth would go on to hit 714 career home runs, a record which would stand until Hank Aaron broke the mark in 1974.
Plus, riots (the Watts Riots) break out in the Watts area of Los Angeles in 1965, the last U. S. ground combat unit exits South Vietnam in 1972, and Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea) is born on this day in 1953.
