The 50 Greatest Moments in New York Yankees History

10. Babe Ruth Calls Shot

Date: 10/1/1932
One of the greatest moments in trash talking history, Ruth did what talkers today can only dream of. In the 5th inning of Game 3 of the 1932 World Series, Babe signaled to the centerfield stands as if to predict he'd hit a home run—and then he actually did it. That's gotta be demoralizing for an opponent and really demonstrates just how dominant he was in his day. That'd be like Tom Brady pointing to the end zone and throwing for a TD with 60 yards to go. #toomuchswag.
