BABE RUTH – A Superstar’s Legacy

Jerry Amernic, the author of BABE RUTH – A Superstar’s Legacy, joined Gotham Baseball’s podcast to discuss the legacy of baseball’s greatest player.

In the book, Amernic explores the legacy of Babe Ruth on many different fronts, both in and beyond baseball. It involves sport, culture, business, the arts, and in no small dose, humanity. 

“BABE RUTH – A Superstar’s Legacy sheds new light on Ruth as a man who was ahead of his time and not only on the baseball field, but also where he stood on racial segregation. There are many books about Babe Ruth, but this is the first one that really gets into the race issue. It’s a masterpiece on the Babe!” – Bill Jenkinson, author of The Year Babe Ruth Hit 104 Home Runs and BABE RUTH: Against All Odds, World’s Mightiest Slugger
