Babe Ruth Sets World Series Record

In a world where we just began the Major League Baseball playoffs, back in the 1920’s they were already in the midst of the World Series.  On this day, October 6, 1926, George Herman “Babe” Ruth hit 3-home runs against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 4 of the World Series.  This wasn’t duplicated until 1977 when Reggie Jackson, also a member of the New York Yankees, became Mr. October against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
