    Babe Ruth’s Effect on Children

    Regardless of his reasons, there is no question from children who got to meet or interact with him that Babe sincerely adored children. And, that these children adored the Babe. Leon Fichman, who was a child actor in the 1930's and starred with the Babe in a few short films, told BRC in June 2006 that, “He was the nicest man I ever met. He was so nice to all of us kids when we worked together for those two weeks. I’ll never forget a minute of it. I remember sitting on his lap and he put his arms around me and made out that ball for me that said, ‘To Leon, from one left-hander to another, Babe Ruth'. I’ll never forget it. One of the most important days of my life.”
