1. George Herman (Babe) Ruth Marker
Inscription.  Babe Ruth was born in 1895, a few blocks northwest of here on Emory Street. In 1902 the seven-year-old was sent to Saint Mary's Industrial School, a home for unwanted children in southwest Baltimore. On the school's playfields he became an outstanding and versatile ballplayer. He left school in 1914 for the minor league Baltimore Orioles, and went on to become one of professional baseball's greatest sluggers. The eventual Hall of Famer amassed 714 career home runs.
