A MESSAGE FROM THE BANNER BARON
I’ll bet that every baseball fan on the planet knows the name “Babe Ruth”. Just a little over 100 years ago last week – on July 11, 1914 to be exact George Herman “Babe” Ruth, Jr. took the mound for the Boston Red Sox in his major league baseball debut. You see, the Babe was an impressive pitcher as well as a force-of-nature home run hitter and twice won 20 games in a single season. But because he wanted to play ball every day of the season, he was allowed to switch to the outfield. No wonder he was such a success! If you can bring that kind of devotion to your job, nothing can hold you back.
So, this week at eSigns.com, we’re remembering the legend, the talent, and the achievements of Babe Ruth, who, incidentally, was listed on an early school record as “incorrigible”. Just goes to show you that the Romans were right: “Labor Omnia Vincit. Hard work overcomes all things. Including incorrigibility. But a big swing and a fast arm help, too.
