Another urban legend. There is no evidence that Ruth did this other than stories.
Hmmm. Bonds hit 73 in one season. How do I know this? I read it in a ....story.
No. There is video of Bonds hitting #73. Tens of thousands of people saw it happen in PERSON. Many many reporters reported it in newspapers, ESPN, etc. When Ruth supposedly hit 625 ft what day was it? Who measured the distance? Where was it reported? Was it reported by someone who was there? Or did they just hear it from someone else? If you are going to claim Ruth hit a 625 ft HR you need to site a source or show some evidence it actually happened. We can't accept that it happened because you say it happened.
I never claimed he did. And the film is just s story in another medium.
My point was that that's all the evidence we have of anything happenning. A story.
Again not true. There are about 40,000 peoplw who saw Bonds hit HR #73. These people are first person accounts of the event happening. I saw it myself on TV. Can you site the source where you read Ruth hit a 625 ft HR? I am really interested to read it.
