Despite his excitement over the new Sports Legends at Camden Yards, museum director Mike Gibbons has no fears that the original Babe Ruth Birthplace & Museum at Emory and Pratt streets will become a forgotten child. "We are returning it to its original theme of being the Babe Ruth shrine," Gibbons said. "Babe Ruth is America's No. 1 sports icon. That won't go away. Babe is the real deal." Gibbons has started a campaign to raise $750,000 to restore the 7,800-square-foot birthplace and make it compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. He obtained $250,000 from the state during the last legislative session, but needs another $250,000 to begin the project.

The Babe Ruth Museum today announced that it is again postponing "Babe's Birthday Bash" until Feb. 19 because of the weather. "It's unfortunate to have to now push the event back for a second consecutive week, but considering the snow that is blanketing our area it is the right decision," said Mike Gibbons, the museum's executive director. "With the new storm only adding to the tremendous snow received last weekend, our thoughts continue to center on the safety of our guests and we do not want anyone to put themselves at risk."
