May 25th, 1935 -- #714

Posted by Mark McCray |

On May 25 1935, at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, Babe Ruth went 4-for-4, drove in 6 runs and hit 3 home runs in an 11-7 loss to the Pirates. These were the last three home runs of his career.

Legend has it that the first homerun he hit that day landed just over the left field fence in the lower bleachers. His second homerun landed in the upper level bleachers. His third and last ever home run cleared the roof at the old Forbes Field—he became the first player ever to accomplish that feat.
