May 25, 1935: Babe Ruth Hits The Final 3 Home Runs of His Great Career

On May 25, 1935, as a member of the Boston Braves, Babe Ruth hit the last three home runs of his career. The Braves were wrapping up a three game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates when the legendary slugger went off at the plate one last time. Ruth's 714th long ball sailed up and over the 86 foot high upper deck in right field, it was the first home run to ever leave the yard at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. Despite Ruth's monster day the Braves lost the contest 11-7, just 5 days later Ruth's playing days came to an end. Ruth spent 22 years in the big leagues, he retired as the all time home run king, the record would stand until Hank Aaron took the title in 1974.  The career of Babe Ruth almost defines the word remarkable, he was a 7 time World Series Champion, he carried a career .342 average, won the AL Home Run Crown 12 times and also led the league in ribbies 6 times, can't forget to mention his pitching record was 94-46.  When it comes down to it, that is just naming a few things that Ruth accomplished in his great career.

  4. BIG BAM THEORY: All those "Black Sox" sheep had gone astray (throwing the World Series of 1919), and the LORD laid upon the BABE (not in a manger, but who wanted to be manager) the iniquity of them all. If the BABE had not done among them the things which no one else had ever done (3 balls out of Forbes Field on May 25, 1935 - three balls over the right-field wall - into the lower deck, then the upper, then over the majestic roof - home runs: 712, 713 and 714 - the final 3 of his career), they would not be guilty of sin. But as it is, they saw, and still they hated both the BABE and his "dad" (i.e. his owner). BABE Ruth, the BASEBALL MESSIAH died at age 53 in 1948, the year the nation of Israel was born. BABE Ruth fulfilled Isaiah's chapter 53 prophecy. 100+53=153 fish Jesus put into the net of Simon "Peter" (Hebrew: Pita, Greek: Peeta) Bar-Jonah(Hebrew: Yayin Yownah - Son of an intoxicating dove). BABE Ruth was the Player of the 20th Century(100 years). Also in 1948, the brand, "Crown Prince" Kipper Snacks was born (i.e. fish purification snacks). They are smoked to hide YAHH/JAH appearing above the mercy seat atop the Ark of the Covenant. They are high in Omega-3 (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), and they are rent in two(2) like the veil to the Holy of Holies (Most Holy Place) was when Messiah died. Babe Ruth loved hot dogs. Probably "Decker" brand hot dogs. Decker hot dogs ran the 100 years of the 20th Century then mysteriously died out. Ben-Deker (1 Kings 4, Isaiah 53) was the "Son of Piercings". He was pierced for our transgressions. The LORD laid upon him the iniquity of us all.
