Babe Ruth Career

A player like Babe Ruth will probably never happen again. He was an accomplished pitcher, hit for high averages, power, scampered around the bases by stealing them and scoring lots of runs. He runs up single season numbers so high he has 6 entries in the top 25 greatest season performances.  The bolded blue numbers show those six seasons.  His career WAA is over 50 points higher than #2 and #3, Lou Gehrig and Hank Aaron.
