Interesting that a UK paper would bother to post this article, didn't know he was so well known in places that are not baseball nations, though perhaps he's legendary the way Pele is even in the U.S. (though we play a lot more soccer here than Brits play baseball there). I couldn't even begin to name a single cricket legend, not one single player ever, yet cricket is avidly followed by probably more than a billion people worldwide (largely thanks to India and Pakistan, where it is a major sport as well).

Having grown up in Baltimore, Babe Ruth's home town, I knew two kids who were supposedly his grand nephews or great grand nephews, or something. The younger brother was a very talented baseball player, the older brother pretty average. Their father had played in the minor leagues, I think making it to AAA ball.

Funny, I always thought Babe Ruth (and the whole world back then) existed only black and white.
