On October 1, 1932, Babe Ruth’s “called shot” home run allegedly takes place during the third game of the World Series, in the fifth inning of Game 3 of the World Series, baseball lore has Babe Ruth pointing to the outfield, predicting that he will hit a home run on the next pitch, before he takes Cubs pitcher Charlie Root deep for the second of his two home runs in New York’s 7-5 victory at Wrigley Field. Although no definitive proof exists, the ‘Bambino’ continued to embellish the account of his throughout his lifetime, but the Chicago right-hander who threw the pitch denied the Yankee slugger had ever made the gesture to his dying day.
