Monday, 11th August 2014 by Ian Brown
On this date 85 years ago, Babe Ruth became the first member of an exclusive club when he hit his 500th home run. Only 25 other players have reached the mark to date. Ruth’s 500th came at League Park in Cleveland, where a small part of the stadium still stands at the corner of a park.
