Babe Ruth was a pioneer in both baseball and civil rights. Babe believed that everybody, men, women and children could play baseball.- no matter your race, religion or background. Babe's granddaughter Linda Ruth Tosetti carries on that tradition of equality. Here's Linda with "Lady Ballplayers" in Pennsylvania(standing left to right) Katie Herring of the 'Grand Rapid Chicks ', Salty Ferguson of the 'Rockford Peaches', Linda Ruth Tosetti, Joanne McComb of the 'Springfield Sallies' and sitting in front is Betty Cook who brought everyone together.

At dedication of Babe Ruth Moher's gravestone 2007

Our friend Paul Harris, Attorney at Law has passed away.  His friendship is irreplaceable and he was a great asset to the legacy of Babe Ruth.  His Dad was a  friend of Babe Ruth growing up in Baltimore. Andy and I have grown very close with Paul and his family.  Our hearts and our prayers go out to them. Paul told us that when he gets to wherever it is you go when you pass on, after he has a reunion with his wife and parents, he was going to look up my Mom, whom he loved and my grandfather.  Knowing Paul I am sure he is in great company! Paul we will miss you. God speed.

Babe Ruth waves his cap while astride "King Jess," a Holstein bull, on an estate in Harrington Park, New Jersey, November 9, 1922. Ruth was one of the public figures invited to the estate owned by lawyer John M. Kelley to witness a wager between Kelley and the famous circus rider May Wirth. Kelley bet that she could not ride his famously ill-tempered beast; Wirth bet that she could. She succeeded -- as did Ruth, who was one of only a few of the other celebrites on hand who attempted the feat. Babe  said,  "You just can't beat the person who never gives up."

She is the granddaughter of the legendary Babe Ruth and lectures on the life of her world renowned grandfather, George Herman “Babe” Ruth, at various schools and universities.

She has been a guest speaker at The Society  of America Baseball Research, the a guest of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown NY, She has also spoken at the Babe Ruth Museum in Baltimore Maryland, the Ted Williams Museum, Tropicana Field, in St. Petersburg, Florida, at the St. Petersburg Preservation Society. Linda has been a presenter of the Babe Ruth Post Season MVP Award that is given annually at the NY Sports Writers Dinner, held in New York City. Linda Ruth Tosetti has also been a Contributor to Fox Channel News, ESPN, the Chicago Sun-Times, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Washington Times and has been an honored guest at Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park and various important sporting venues and events throughout America. She is considered a leading authority on the life and times of her fabled grandfather from an intimate family point of view.

   Her striking resemblance to her grandfather shows she is a direct descendant through her mother, Dorothy Ruth Pirone, Babe Ruth’s only blood daughter. It is a goal of Ms. Tosetti to see Major League Baseball retire her grandfather’s  Number 3, (http://www.thetruebaberuth.com) as a final honor and tribute to the enormous contributions Babe Ruth made to the national pastime of baseball and to have a statue of her amazing grandfather put in the new Yankee Stadium. There is a desire for this in the new stadium, as voiced by the fans. She is in the process of setting up the GHR Group for education and to further the legacy of Babe Ruth through charitable works.

Mrs. Tosetti resides in Connecticut with her husband, Andrew.

On Babe's popularity among fans...Linda Ruth Tosetti writes:

     “…I feel my grandfather never asked for this admiration, he earned it. It is not something you can buy from the fans or demand. It is there because the fans felt that love and respect Babe had for them and the time he took with each one. That is how Babe Ruth earned his place in history with baseball being his vehicle. When all the memorials are dust, Babe Ruth will always be remembered, especially in the hearts of all baseball fans.”

"What Babe Ruth is comes down one generation, handing it to the next, as a national heirloom".   Jimmy Cannon

Babe Ruth is the man who saved baseball and launched a major league revolution in hitting! Join our effort to honor the Babe by having his famous number 3 retired throughout Major League Baseball.

LINDAGLOVE2.jpg

As baseball’s first and greatest home run king, Babe Ruth revolutionized the sport. In 1920, his fifty-four home runs made all the critics of baseball forget about the 1919 Black Sox scandal, and brought the fans back to our national pastime. His first year in New York drew over a million fans into the ball parks. There was yet another gambling scandal after the 1926 season which implicated both Ty Cobb and Tris Speaker. Neither man was convicted of anything, but they were both forced out of their respective positions with their teams. In an article that was written, Babe told the public not to worry about the scandal, and predicted the greatest baseball season ever in 1927. My grandfather captured the attention of the entire nation by breaking his own record by smashing 60 home runs. By the end of the season, everyone had forgotten the black eye that had afflicted baseball earlier that same year. Babe Ruth saved baseball for the second time
