Allen Barra, in "Clemens: The Greatest of All Time" [October 16], writes: "So why haven't the Yankees ever had the best pitcher in baseball? (Well, they did, actually, and they turned him into an outfielder, but let that pass.)" This is incorrect. It was during Babe Ruth's Red Sox years that he quit pitching. Ruth was a right fielder and a home run king when he was sold to the Yankees in 1920.
