Sports Saturday: The Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum

October 16th, 2010 by Alex Fili

While the playoffs are in full swing, take a breather and brush up on one of baseball’s greats: Babe Ruth. Here in Baltimore, we have the great honor of being home to the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum.

The site consists of the house (and the three houses next door) where he was born in 1895 to serve as a tribute to the great Bambino, filled with many Babe artifacts like his boyhood bat and the official score book from Babe’s first professional game with the 1914 Orioles.

Just “a long fly ball” away from Camden Yards, the museum has expanded over its 30-year history and isn’t just a tribute to baseball’s greatest slugger but to Baltimore sports. You’re sure to find the fascinating tales of the Orioles, the Colts, and the Ravens here.

So really why not head over? You’re bound to find something that sparks your interest. You’re undoubtedly going to learn the great history of Baltimore. And you’ll get to follow the baseballs sprayed on the sidewalk that lead the way. What could be better?

Admission prices are $3 to $6.

The Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum is located at:
216 Emory Street
Baltimore, MD 21201
