Obscured by his aforementioned slugging prowess and 54-ounce bat. Obscured by the birth of the Yankee tradition and the house he built. And seemingly forever obscured by his own success as baseball's most feared, most dominant hitter of all time. Joseph Lannin, owner of the Boston Red Sox purchased him in July of 1914 along with two other players from the Baltimore Orioles of the International League. He was strictly a pitcher at that time with less than three months of professional experience, but was sought after by many teams.

Later on when the new Boston players arrived at Fenway Park, Ruth was promptly informed by Manager Carrigan that he needed him to start against Cleveland that afternoon. The Red Sox pitching staff was in need of reinforcements, with Smoky Joe Wood having elbow problems, and starter George Foster having suffered a knee injury in late June. Bill Carrigan, a native of Lewiston, Maine, was a no-nonsense leader who commanded the respect of all in his charge. Nicknamed "Rough," he attended Holy Cross University in the early 1900s and debuted as a catcher with the Red Sox in 1906.

In the autobiography, Ruth referred to Helen, to whom he was married for over a decade as Helen "Woodring" rather than Woodford. The "Woodring'' example serves as the prime example of Ruth's inability to recall names. It has also been written several times that Ruth's first start against Cleveland was the first major league game that he ever witnessed.
