Babe Ruth. The Sultan of Swat was born in Baltimore, Md., on Feb. 6, 1895. He went on to hit 714 home runs, win seven World Series, and become the widely considered greatest baseball player of all time.

Considered by many as not only the greatest catcher to ever play in the Negro Leagues, but the greatest catcher in baseball history period, Josh Gibson hit an astounding .359 for his career. Known as the “Black Babe Ruth,” he never played in the Major Leagues because of their exclusionary rules towards Blacks.
