“I never heard a crowd boo a homer, but I’ve heard plenty of boos after a strikeout.”
- Babe Ruth, quoted in Grand Slams and Fumbles, by Peter Bellenson (as referenced in Baseball’s Greatest Quotations).
Yeah, Yankees fans used to boo Babe Ruth. This sort of puts some perspective on all the “How can the fans boo?” talk today. Last time I checked, this Ruth fellow was a pretty fair ballplayer. It just goes to show – everyone gets booed at one time or another.
