“Once religion sinks in, it stays there—deep down. The lads who get religious training, get it where it counts—in the roots. They may fail it, but it never fails them.” George Herman Ruth Jr. uttered those words in 1946, two years before he died. Babe was a product of a Catholic education. He was raised a Catholic and attended St. Mary's College. It was actually at that Catholic school that a teacher, Brother Mathias Boutlier, encouraged the boy to play baseball.
