Immortal Babe Ruth (MLB 18)

Babe Ruth was to MLB The Show 18 as Griffey Jr. was to MLB The Show 17. He was the big new legend everyone was looking forward to. Ruth had been a long-anticipated card since MLB 16 when all-time legends first became popular in the game, and SDS delivered in a big way, making him the best-hitting Immortal card in the game. This was the first year attributes surpassed 99, and Ruth clocked in at 125 power and contact vs both lefties and righties.

Of course, his other hitting stats were great, with 108 vision, 125 vision, and clutch. Ruth’s fielding, however, was not outstanding. He had just 73 fielding with 72 arm strength. He had okay speed, coming in at 64. But many players who did unlock Ruth used him at his secondary position of first base so they could hide his below-average outfield arm. Many cards today have 120+ power and contact vs both sides, but Ruth’s Immortal card was the first to do it.
