Watch Yu Darvish Strike Out Babe Ruth and Other GIFs of Baseball Legends vs. Current All-Stars
Babe Ruth has always been thought of as one of the best hitters to ever play the game of baseball, but in his lifetime he never had to deal with a pitcher that had an arsenal like Darvish’s.

And apparently, whoever was responsible for creating the gif below, which gives us an idea of what it would look like if Darvish were pitching to the Great Bambino, agrees.

That looked like the two-seamer, and Ruth never stood a chance.
As for the other match-ups pitting former baseball legends against current baseball all-stars, it appears as though Albert Pujols got the better of Nolan Ryan, while Bryce Harper didn’t stand much of a chance against Bob Gibson.
