Popular Science: Why Babe Ruth is the Greatest HR Hitter

Post by fisherboy7 on Wed May 07, 2008 2:30 pm

The game was over. Babe, who had made one of his famous drives that day, was tired and wanted to go home. "Not tonight, Babe," I said. "Tonight you go to college with me. You're going to take scientific tests which will reveal your secret."

"Who wants to know it?" asked Babe.

"I want to know it," I replied, "and so do several hundred thousand fans. We want to know why it is that one man has achieved a unique batting skill like yours -- just why you can slam the ball as nobody else in the world can." LINK TO FULL ARTICLE

So, Babe Ruth was a superb HR hitter because he was a superior athlete.
Gee, I coulda told you that.
But most of the tests focused on hand-eye and hand-ear coordination.
These are tests which women typically outscore men on.
Its a good thing that they do not often have the upper body strength of men.
We'd all be in more trouble than we already are!
