In the summer of 1967, a brief item in "Mr. Peep's Diary," an Evening Sun column, reported the imminent destruction of four dilapidated Baltimore rowhouses, including one thought to be the birthplace of one George Herman Ruth.I brought the story to the attention of Mayor Theodore Roosevelt McKeldin, for whom I then worked as press secretary.Since he had saved the Carroll Mansion, home of the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence, I thought he should also save the Ruth house.

Ruth's first train ride was with the Baltimore Orioles, to Fayetteville, N.C., for his first spring training. His teammates called him "Dunnie's Babe." Sportswriters shortened it to Babe. He homered in his first pickup game as a professional and was so impressive as a rookie that he attracted the attention of the Boston Red Sox, who bought him from the minor-league Orioles and put Ruth in the major leagues in July 1914, less than six months after his departure from St. Mary's.

LOS ANGELES -- Pigs can fly. If you don't believe it, just ask video retailers that are having trouble keeping "Babe" in stock.Many retailers report that they have sold through their initial order of the MCA/Universal Home Video title, which was released March 19, and are quickly running through reserve inventory."
