OriginEdit

“The Sultan of Swat”, Babe Ruth played for the New York Yankees from 1914 to 1935. Ruth established many MLB batting (and some pitching) records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand today. His high scoring rate helped the Yankees win many championships during his tenure, boosted the sport’s popularity and his own image. In his off time, the public gathered to read the stories of his reckless lifestyle and poor background tempered with his charity work and athletic success. Today, he is regarded as one of the best athletes to play baseball and one of the most famous of any sport.

It is mentioned in the episode “Mild Mannered” as a possible source of the artifact energies.

EffectsEdit

Alters density to send objects that it strikes flying for the equivalent length of a home run. Surface area and weight appear to have little effect, as the bat seems to only provide more force with unusually shaped objects.
