This Day in Baseball History:
April 26, 1969 > The Baseball Records Committee determines that Babe Ruth should get credit for another home run, bringing his lifetime total to 715. Apparently, one of his home runs had been incorrectly recorded as a triple by statisticians; however, the committee will later reverse its decision, and return the Bambino's total to the 714 we recognize today.
