Take It From “The Babe”

by Rob Wicker

Grantland Rice was a famous sportswriter in the 1920s. He once interviewed the great Babe Ruth when Ruth was mired in a slump. 

Rice asked: Babe, what do you do when you get in a batting slump? 

Ruth answered: I just keep going up there and swinging at ‘em…I know the law of averages will hold for me the way it does for everybody else.

The Babe struck out more times than anybody in baseball history, but as you know he also held the home run record for decades. Babe Ruth epitomizes the power of persistence. He endured plenty of tough times, including a childhood spent in an orphanage, to become America’s greatest sports hero. 

When times are tough, “just keep swinging at ‘em.”
