Sports

Sporting events have fascinated spectators for centuries. Read about athletes who have broken barriers, pushed the bar high, and set world records.

Babe Ruth - Baseball Legend star
The face of American baseball changed when 19-year-old George Herman Ruth, Jr., was signed to play for the Baltimore Orioles. Within five months, he was a major player with the Boston Red Sox and would eventually make history with the New York Yankees. Babe Ruth died on August 16, 1948.

Janet Guthrie star
Janet Guthrie became the first woman to drive in the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500. She was born on March 7, 1938.

Jason Kidd´s NBA Career star
Jason Kidd assisted the New Jersey Nets to have one of the most dramatic turnarounds in NBA history. Read about his (mostly) successful career.

Phelps Wins 8th Olympic Gold star
Michael Phelps swam to win his eighth Olympic gold on August 17, 2008, in Beijing. He broke many national, world and personal best records, and will go down in history for his outstanding performance.

The Bizarre Belly Flop of Devon Loch star
You’ve heard of Seabiscuit and Secretariat, and maybe even Red Rum and Black Caviar. But do you know what happened to Devon Loch? On March 24, 1956, this racehorse also made history, but not as a winner.

The Girl Who Struck Out Ruth and Gehrig star
Born on April 2, 1931, Jackie Mitchell was a pitcher for the Chattanooga Lookouts. She struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig consecutively during an exhibition game between her team and the New York Yankees.

Vandals Rip Up NY Giants Field star
On September 29, 1957, seventy-five seasons after they started playing ball, the New York Giants played their final game. Then they flew west to San Francisco. How did their fans react? With mixed emotions, apparently.
