70 years after Babe Ruth's death, fans still flock to grave

HAWTHORNE, N.Y. (AP) Amid the serene graves at Gate of Heaven Cemetery sits the one where visitors leave baseballs and bats instead of bouquets, tributes to a baseball superstar who still outshines others seven decades after his death.

It's the resting place of Babe Ruth, the indelible slugger and larger-than-life personality who died Aug. 16, 1948.

Considered by many the greatest player in baseball history, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox legend set home run records - 60 in one season, 714 in his career - that stood for decades. He remains one of the sport's defining figures.
