Gone: Uncovering Babe Ruth’s Lost Home Run

February 7, 2019

David Neft is an American pioneer best known for gathering a team of researchers to create the first ever comprehensive Baseball Encyclopedia. In doing so, for one week, way back in 1969, after Neft’s team of researchers uncovered Babe Ruth’s lost home run (HR), The Baseball Encyclopedia was to officially recognize 715 as Babe Ruth‘s actual career HR total.

Soon thereafter, a committee voted to return Ruth’s record to 714.
