    This is an easy one Babe Ruth is baseball everyone knows who he is while half the country never heard of Aaron case closed .

    "Apples & oranges" because of different eras.

    My vote would go for Hank because he could run, at least in his younger years..He faced tougher pitching than the Babe.

    On the other side: Hank didn't dominate the game the way the Babe did.

    NO, different eras different baseballs 

    If Ruth had played in Aaron's era he would have had more home runs

    Both great hard to compare.  Ruth may have faced easier pitching.  Ruth took 20 seasons to hit 714 HRs.  Aaron took twenty seasons to hit 715.    Ruth hit 60 HRs in 1935.  Aaron hit 45 HRs in 1971.    Ruth with Boston Braves hit 712, 713 and 714 in one game and they still lost to Pittsburgh.  Ruth ten world series including one where he pitched 30 scoreless innings.  Aaron two world series and MVP.

    Although he hit 41 more home runs than he did, Hank never hit 60 in a single season or multihomer games like Babe did.
