    Why did the Red Sox trade Babe Ruth?

    A:

    The Boston Red Sox traded Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees because the pitcher and outfielder demanded more money than Boston's ownership was willing to pay. On Dec. 26, 1919, the Yankees purchased Ruth's contract for $125,000 and $300,000 in loans. The trade, and subsequent inability to win the World Series for more than 80 years, was known as "The Curse of the Bambino."
