BALTIMORE -- Babe's Birthday Bash went to the bar this year.
The annual event, the proceeds of which benefit the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation, was hosted Friday night for the first time by Pickles Pub in downtown Baltimore. With the abrupt closing of The Sports Legends Museum -- located next to Oriole Park at Camden Yards -- in October, the venue change made for a different feel in commemorating the 121st anniversary of Ruth's birth in Baltimore.
