Babe Ruth, the Baltimore saloon-keeper's son who became the best-known and best-loved athlete in American history, and who was described by sportswriter Jimmy Cannon as a "national heirloom," is the focus of the fourth inning. This inning details how Ruth's phenomenal performance thrilled the nation throughout the 1920s and rescued the game from the scandal that threatened to destroy it.
