Babe Ruth's 1921 season may have been the greatest in MLB history. He hit a new record of 59 homeruns, 171 RBI, scored 177 runs, batted .376, and had a .846 slugging precentage. With him leading the way, the Yankees became the most recognizable and dominant team in baseball,setting attendence records along the way. When the yankees moved to a new stadium in 1923, it was called "The House that Ruth Built".
