The Promise Babe Ruth Made To A Dying Boy
In 1926, an eleven-year-old boy, Johnny Sylvester, lived in the American state of New Jersey, who adored the New York Yankees, but especially their biggest star and, according to many, the best baseball player ever, Babe Ruth.
Johnny had minor health problems, but then everything changed in the spring of 1926 when he had an accident and fell off his horse. While the boy was on the ground, the horse that stumbled because he came across a hole, tried to get up and on that occasion hit the unfortunate boy on the forehead.
Johnny suffered serious injuries in that accident, and his condition worsened during the summer, so he was “dying” at the beginning of September. To this day, it is speculated what health problems the boy actually had, those close to him claim that he most likely had a skull bone infection, while others think that he had major problems with sinuses due to a horse blow or blood poisoning, while some said he had brain swelling.
As he lay in bed, aware of his difficult condition, Johnny told his father that he would like to experience “seeing” another “home run” that Babe Ruth will achieve. The family did not wait, as soon as they found out about Johnny’s wish, they sent a telegram to the New York Yankees in which they explained the boy’s health condition and his “last wish”, but also asked Babe Ruth to answer him and “encourage” Johnny not to give up.
The Yankees leaders immediately conveyed the message they received from the boy’s family to their main star, and Babe Ruth had no dilemma at all about what to do. Although the Yankees were playing the grand final of the league against the St. Louis Cardinals at the time, Babe Ruth took the time to telegram to Johnny, but also to send him two baseballs as a gift, one signed by the Yankees and the other signed by the Cardinals. On the ball with the signatures of the Yankees player, there was a personally written message from Babe Ruth for Johnny Sylvester. “I will achieve a home run for you in the game on Wednesday,” the message read.
On October 6, 1926, in the fourth game of the final series, Babe Ruth fulfilled the promise given to Johnny Sylvester, but not only that. He scored an incredible three “home run” shots in that match against the Cardinals, which has remained one of the greatest achievements in the final matches of the MLB championship to this day.
