On May 25, 1935, 40-year-old Babe Ruth slugged three home runs in Pittsburgh’s Forbes Field. The last clout was the farthest hit in Steel Town—into a construction lot 600 feet away. Six days from retirement, Ruth lumbered around the bases proclaiming his victory, "Boy, that last one felt good."
Within these pages—where the swings are mighty and the tales are tall—read 29 profiles of the greatest long-ball hitters including legends Joe DiMaggio, Loui Gehrig, Carl Yastrzemski, and all 15 members of the 500-home run club. Revisit the past through cover-to-cover photos of games dating back to the 1911 World Series. Sluggers also features eight special sections including Magical Blasts, which relives baseball’s 10 most dramatic home runs, and Record Breakers, which replays dramas like Babe Ruth’s 60th. This heavy-hitting baseball almanac is an essential keepsake for every fan. . 1969. HARDCOVER.
