Babe Ruth Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on April 27
Babe Ruth Day honors one of Baseball's greatest players ever.
On April 27, 1947, Babe Ruth attended Yankee Stadium for Babe Ruth Day. It was to be the second last time he was at the stadium. In 1946, Babe Ruth was diagnosed with Throat Cancer. Back then, there was not as much treatment as there is today.
On this day in 1947, baseball's "The Bambino" returned to "The House that Ruth Built" to be honored.
Quote Straight from the Bambino: " Yesterday's home runs do not win today's games."
