Babe Ruth

1898

On April 22, 1914, Orioles pitcher Babe Ruth played in his first pro game, a 6-0 International League victory over Providence. In recognition of that event, SI.com looks back at some classic photos of the baseball legend.

Long before he was know as "The Babe," "The Bambino" or "The Sultan of Swat," a three-year old Babe Ruth poses for a portrait in Baltimore, the city where he was born on Feb. 6, 1895.
