As professional baseball reaches its summer break and its annual All Star game, Times sports writer Neil Hayes takes the opportunity to explore Babe Ruth and what the Babe has meant to baseball and to America through all these years. Neil began his research at the beginning of baseball season and at a time when we began to think that Barry Bonds would soon pass the Babe on baseball's all-time home run list. With Bonds still on the shelf, Neil continued with his research and now provides us with a wonderful three-part series on Ruth. You'll find Neil's story on the front of Sunday's newspaper. The series continues on Monday and Tuesday. Hope you enjoy it.
