Julia Ruth Stevens, Babe Ruth's Last Surviving Daughter, Dead at 102

Recommended Posts


Julia Ruth Stevens, daughter of Hall of Famer Babe Ruth, died Saturday. Stevens, 102, was Ruth's last surviving daughter.


Stevens' son Tom confirmed her death Sunday, per the Associated Press (via USA Today): "She lived such a full, interesting life. She was an ambassador for Babe Ruth."


Stevens was 12 when Ruth married her mother in 1929 and formally adopted her.






Although Ruth spent 15 years and won four World Series titles with the New York Yankees, Stevens made her allegiances clear when she donned a Boston Red Sox jersey and threw out the first pitch for a July 12, 2015, matchup between the two teams.


She was 99 when she threw that pitch :o
