1932 World Series Game 3
The Called Shot
New York vs Chicago
7 - 5
1 October, 1932
In Babe Ruth's final World Series for New York, he had perhaps the most iconic moment in baseball. It was Game 3 of the World Series against Chicago, and Ruth had already homered in the game, a 3 run shot in the first. But by the 5th inning, Chicago had rallied back and tied the score at 4s and the Chicago dugout was riding Ruth mercilessly. After taking strike one Babe Ruth pointed to the center bleachers. Then after taking strike two, he again pointed. Some believe he was pointing at the pitcher Charlie Root or indicating he still had one more strike to Chicago's dugout, but Lou Gehrig maintained that Ruth had called his shot and that is how it would go down in history. On the next pitch Ruth literally swung for the bleachers and hit the ball into the center field bleachers for a homerun. New York went on to win the game and the Championship for their 4th World Series.
