or Babe Didrikson orig. Mildred Ella Didrikson born June 26, 1914, Port Arthur, Texas, U.S. died Sept. 27, 1956, Galveston, Texas U.S. athlete who excelled in several sports. She became a remarkable performer in basketball and track and field and later a leading golfer. In 1930-31 she was a member of the women's All-America basketball team. In national track-and-field competition in 1930-32, she won eight events and tied for a ninth. In the 1932 Olympics she won gold medals in the 80-m hurdles and javelin throw; she was deprived of the high-jump gold medal for using a then-unorthodox method. As a golfer from 1946, she won numerous championships, including the U.S. and British women's amateur tournaments (1946, 1947) and the U.S. Women's Open (1948, 1950, 1954)
Ruth, Babe. a US baseball player, the most famous ever, who played mainly for the New York Yankees team, and got more home runs than anyone before him. He was called the Sultan of Swat (1895-1948). orig. George Herman Ruth born Feb. 6, 1895, Baltimore, Md., U.S. died Aug. 16, 1948, New York, N.Y. U.S. baseball player, one of the greatest hitters and most popular figures in the sport's history. He began his career in 1914 as a member of Baltimore's minor league team and joined the Boston Red Sox later that season. He started as a pitcher, compiling an outstanding record (94 wins, 46 losses), but switched to the outfield because of his powerful hitting. Sold to the New York Yankees in 1920, he remained with the team until 1934; he played his last year with the Boston Braves (1935). He coached the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1938, but his reputation for irresponsibility prevented his obtaining a permanent coaching or manager's job. His prodigious slugging earned him the nickname "Sultan of Swat." In 1927 he set the most famous of all baseball records when he hit 60 home runs in a single season, a mark that stood until 1961, when broken by Roger Maris. Ruth hit at least 50 home runs in four separate seasons and at least 40 in each of 11 seasons. His career slugging percentage (.690) remains an all-time record; he ranks second in career home runs (714, behind Hank Aaron), runs (2,174, behind Ty Cobb), and runs batted in (2,213, again behind Aaron), and third in extra-base hits (1,356, behind Aaron and Stan Musial)
[ bAb ] (noun.) 14th century. From Middle English babe, perhaps a variant of earlier baban. Origin obscure. Compare mama, dada, papa. Welsh baban (“baby”), believed by Skeat to be a mutated from maban diminutive of mab ("son"), is probably rather a borrowing from the English. Whitney, The Century dictionary and cylcopedia, babe.
