Photo courtesy Richie Arakelian. She brought Ripsime with her! I was kind of shell-shocked because I had only seen her in the video, never physically. The first place we went to was the Santa Monica Pier. Before I left, we came back again in the evening to walk and I asked her to marry me.
Then on my birthday in June, she came to Boston and we decided that we would come back over here to live and I moved to L.
We rented a one-bedroom apartment in Glendale. It was tough because it is a totally different place to live and to work than Boston. It was not as easy but again I found a job. Inwe had our son, Hakop. He is now 8-years-old. When I came back over we got a visa for her and she came in December My son was six months old at that time and it was a really big help for us because we couldn't afford a babysitter. We bought a town house in Northridge so we could all be a little more comfortable.
Richie Arakelian: Weightlifter Who Left Armenia to Set World Records
I've done this over the years in all different kinds of places. They know me pretty well there. I helped make a big arrest. It took me a few seconds to get the guy and cuff him. The police came and they were amazed and asked how did I do all that? I said, 'I have been trained. I went to Immigration and applied and within thirty days everything was completed. For ten years I worked and paid my taxes. My wife is a U.
A couple of years later, I applied for and received U. I was always meaning to break world records, to be a champion one more time. But they said I had to be a U. I could still set some records even if I was unaffiliated with any organization or team. I found the Guinness world record for weight lifting.
I stayed up until three in the morning and called Guinness' offices in London. Richie Arakelian right receives congratulations from manager Andrew Freund after winning a gold medal during a recent California powerlifting competition.
I said, 'Okay, I am going to break it. Guinness required three judges witness the feat - a police officer, a doctor and a licensed judge or professional sportsman. The judges wrote down what I did, stamped it and sent that and a video off to London. Thirty days passed and soon I received my certificate. I started training harder. I passed the world record by approximately 50, pounds. Ruth pitched the middle three innings and gave up two runs in the fourth, but then settled down and pitched a scoreless fifth and sixth innings.
In a game against the Phillies the following afternoon, Ruth entered during the sixth inning and did not allow a run the rest of the way. The Orioles scored seven runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to overcome a 6—0 deficit, and Ruth was the winning pitcher. The team performed well, yet received almost no attention from the Baltimore press.
A third major league, the Federal Leaguehad begun play, and the local franchise, the Baltimore Terrapinsrestored that city to the major leagues for the first time since Few fans visited Oriole Parkwhere Ruth and his teammates labored in relative obscurity. Ruth may have been offered a bonus and a larger salary to jump to the Terrapins; when rumors to that effect swept Baltimore, giving Ruth the most publicity he had experienced to date, a Terrapins official denied it, stating it was their policy not to sign players under contract to Dunn.
Although by late June the Orioles were in first place, having won over two-thirds of their games, the paid attendance dropped as low as Dunn explored a possible move by the Orioles to Richmond, Virginiaas well as the sale of a minority interest in the club. These possibilities fell through, leaving Dunn with little choice other than to sell his best players to major league teams to raise money. Ruth remained with the Orioles for several days while the Red Sox completed a road trip, and reported to the team in Boston on July Ruth later told the story of how that morning he had met Helen Woodford, who was the girl that would be his first wife.

She was a year-old waitress at Landers Coffee Shop, and Ruth related that she served him when he had breakfast there. Other stories, though, suggested that the meeting occurred on another day, and perhaps under other circumstances. Regardless of when he began to woo his first wife, he won his first game as a pitcher for the Red Sox that afternoon, 4—3, over the Cleveland Naps. His catcher was Bill Carriganwho was also the Red Sox manager. Shore was given a start by Carrigan the next day; he won that and his second start and thereafter was pitched regularly.
Ruth lost his second start, and was thereafter little used. During his time as a Red Sox, he kept an eye on the inexperienced Ruth, much as Dunn had in Baltimore. When he was traded, no one took his place as supervisor.
Ruth's new teammates considered him brash, and would have preferred him, as a rookie, to remain quiet and inconspicuous. When Ruth insisted on taking batting practice despite being both a rookie who did not play regularly, and a pitcher, he arrived to find his bats sawn in half. His teammates nicknamed him "the Big Baboon", a name the swarthy Ruth, who had disliked the nickname "Niggerlips" at St. Although Ruth won both against minor-league competition, he was not restored to the pitching rotation.
It is uncertain why Carrigan did not give Ruth additional opportunities to pitch. There are legends—filmed for the screen in The Babe Ruth Story —that the young pitcher had a habit of signaling his intent to throw a curveball by sticking out his tongue slightly, and that he was easy to hit until this changed.
Creamer pointed out that it is common for inexperienced pitchers to display such habits, and the need to break Ruth of his would not constitute a reason to not use him at all. The biographer suggested that Carrigan was unwilling to use Ruth due to poor behavior by the rookie.
To soothe Providence fans upset at losing a star, Lannin announced that the Red Sox would soon send a replacement to the Grays. This was intended to be Ruth, but his departure for Providence was delayed when Cincinnati Reds owner Garry Herrmann claimed him off waivers.
After Lannin wrote to Herrmann explaining that the Red Sox wanted Ruth in Providence so he could develop as a player, and would not release him to a major league club, Herrmann allowed Ruth to be sent to the minors. Carrigan later stated that Ruth was not sent down to Providence to make him a better player, but to help the Grays win the International League pennant league championship.
After Dunn's deals, the Baltimore Orioles managed to hold on to first place until August 15, after which they continued to fade, leaving the pennant race between Providence and Rochester.
Ruth was deeply impressed by Providence manager "Wild Bill" Donovanpreviously a star pitcher with a 25—4 win—loss record for Detroit in ; in later years, he credited Donovan with teaching him much about pitching.
Ruth was often called upon to pitch, in one stretch starting and winning four games in eight days. On September 5 at Maple Leaf Park in Toronto, Ruth pitched a one-hit 9—0 victory, and hit his first professional home run, his only one as a minor leaguer, off Ellis Johnson.
Ruth finished the season with a record of 2—1 as a major leaguer and 23—8 in the International League for Baltimore and Providence. Creamer speculated that they did not marry in Baltimore, where the newlyweds boarded with George Ruth Sr.
Mary's—both bride and groom were not yet of age   and Ruth remained on parole from that institution until his 21st birthday. Despite a relatively successful first season, he was not slated to start regularly for the Red Sox, who already had two stellar left-handed pitchers: Ruth was ineffective in his first start, taking the loss in the third game of the season.
Injuries and ineffective pitching by other Boston pitchers gave Ruth another chance, and after some good relief appearances, Carrigan allowed Ruth another start, and he won a rain-shortened seven inning game. Ruth took a 3—2 lead into the ninth, but lost the game 4—3 in 13 innings. Ruth, hitting ninth as was customary for pitchers, hit a massive home run into the upper deck in right field off of Jack Warhop. At the time, home runs were rare in baseball, and Ruth's majestic shot awed the crowd.
The winning pitcher, Warhop, would in August conclude a major league career of eight seasons, undistinguished but for being the first major league pitcher to give up a home run to Babe Ruth.
Carrigan was sufficiently impressed by Ruth's pitching to give him a spot in the starting rotation. Ruth finished the season 18—8 as a pitcher; as a hitter, he batted.
Boston won in five games; Ruth was used as a pinch hitter in Game Five, but grounded out against Phillies ace Grover Cleveland Alexander. The two met five times during the season, with Ruth winning four and Johnson one Ruth had a no decision in Johnson's victory. Two of Ruth's victories were by the score of 1—0, one in a inning game. Of the 1—0 shutout decided without extra innings, AL President Ban Johnson stated, "That was one of the best ball games I have ever seen.
Ruth started and won Game 2, 2—1, in 14 innings. Until another game of that length was played inthis was the longest World Series game, [b] and Ruth's pitching performance is still the longest postseason complete game victory.

Ruth, who played under four managers who are in the National Baseball Hall of Famealways maintained that Carrigan, who is not enshrined there, was the best skipper he ever played for. On June 23 at Washington, Ruth made a memorable pitching start. The runner who had reached base on the walk was caught stealingand Shore retired all 26 batters he faced to win the game. Shore's feat was listed as a perfect game for many years;  inMajor League Baseball 's MLB Committee on Statistical Accuracy caused it to be listed as a combined no-hitter.
Conscription was introduced in Septemberand most baseball players in the big leagues were of draft age. This included Barry, who was a player-manager, and who joined the Naval Reserve in an attempt to avoid the draft, only to be called up after the season. Barrow had spent the previous 30 years in a variety of baseball jobs, though he never played the game professionally. With the major leagues shorthanded due to the war, Barrow had many holes in the Red Sox lineup to fill. Barrow used Ruth at first base and in the outfield during the exhibition season, but he restricted him to pitching as the team moved towards Boston and the season opener.
At the time, Ruth was possibly the best left-handed pitcher in baseball, and allowing him to play another position was an experiment that could have backfired. Hooper urged his manager to allow Ruth to play another position when he was not pitching,  arguing to Barrow, who had invested in the club, that the crowds were larger on days when Ruth played, as they were attracted by his hitting.
Barrow used Ruth primarily as an outfielder in the war-shortened season. He was still occasionally used as a pitcher, and had a 13—7 record with a 2.
The season had been shortened because the government had ruled that baseball players who were eligible for the military would have to be inducted or work in critical war industries, such as armaments plants. Ruth pitched and won Game One for the Red Sox, a 1—0 shutout. Before Game Four, Ruth injured his left hand in a fight; he pitched anyway. He gave up seven hits and six walks, but was helped by outstanding fielding behind him and by his own batting efforts, as a fourth-inning triple by Ruth gave his team a 2—0 lead.
The Cubs tied the game in the eighth inning, but the Red Sox scored to take a 3—2 lead again in the bottom of that inning. After Ruth gave up a hit and a walk to start the ninth inning, he was relieved on the mound by Joe Bush.
To keep Ruth and his bat in the game, he was sent to play left field. Bush retired the side to give Ruth his second win of the Series, and the third and last World Series pitching victory of his career, against no defeats, in three pitching appearances. Ruth's effort gave his team a three-games-to-one lead, and two days later the Red Sox won their third Series in four years, four-games-to-two. Ruth was prouder of that record than he was of any of his batting feats.
Many industrial establishments took pride in their baseball teams and sought to hire major leaguers. The end of the war in November set Ruth free to play baseball without such contrivances. Barrow used him as a pitcher mostly in the early part of the season, when the Red Sox manager still had hopes of a second consecutive pennant. By late June, the Red Sox were clearly out of the race, and Barrow had no objection to Ruth concentrating on his hitting, if only because it drew people to the ballpark.
Ruth had hit a home run against the Yankees on Opening Day, and another during a month-long batting slump that soon followed. Relieved of his pitching duties, Ruth began an unprecedented spell of slugging home runs, which gave him widespread public and press attention.
Even his failures were seen as majestic—one sportswriter noted, "When Ruth misses a swipe at the ball, the stands quiver". Ruth matched that on July 29, then pulled ahead toward the major league record of 24, set by Buck Freeman in He broke the record four days later against the Yankees at the Polo Grounds, and hit one more against the Senators to finish with The home run at Washington made Ruth the first major league player to hit a home run at all eight ballparks in his league.
He won them over with success on the field and a willingness to build the Red Sox by purchasing or trading for players. Even so, Frazee was successful in bringing other players to Boston, especially as replacements for players in the military. This willingness to spend for players helped the Red Sox secure the title. That play did not open untilhowever, by which time Frazee had sold the Red Sox.
He demanded that his salary be doubled, or he would sit out the season and cash in on his popularity through other ventures.
