On Nov. 17, the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation opened Babe Ruth Field at Gibbons Commons, its 60th youth development park in the nation. The field is built on the site that St. Mary’s alumnus Babe Ruth used to hone his skills in the early 1900s, which was purchased by St. Agnes Heathcare in 2012 as part of the 32-acre Gibbons Commons property to develop as community, recreational services, and affordable housing.
