Matt N here with the first ever blog on Baseball With Matt that actually gives info about baseball!
My fact is:
You know all of those big home run hitters of today like Alex Rodriguez, David Ortiz, and Albert Pujols. Well at the start of the 1900s, no one hit more than 29 round-trippers! That era was known as the Dead Ball Era. Stars like Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner hit a lot, but didn't leave the ballpark more than 10 to 15 times a year. There was one person who began the era of home runs. He was one of the greatest, Babe Ruth!
