Babe Ruth, 2010 Promotional Card
Are you curious about the Babe's performance as an Oriole? Unfortunately, he joined another International League team - the Providence Grays - after the Red Sox signed him, and his I.L. stats are presented on Baseball Reference as cumulative totals. He wasn't quite the otherworldly hitter he would come to be, as he batted .231 with 2 doubles, 8 triples, and 1 home run in 121 at-bats. But he was excellent on the mound, going 22-9 with a 2.39 ERA. You can certainly see why Boston brought him up to the major leagues in July.
