Perhaps no franchise in the history of sport has been more consistently revered — and feared — than the New York Yankees, and no player personifies that mystique like Babe Ruth.

The Sultan of Swat thrilled Yankees fans over the course of 15 seasons starting in 1920, and leads the team’s all-time roster with 142.7 wins above replacement. Combined with his WAR from his days with the Red Sox, his career total of 163.1 leads all of baseball.
