Babe Ruth's home is on Dutton Road in Sudbury, Massachusetts. The baseball legend lived here from 1922 to 1926. Ruth purchased this 155 acre property, soon to be named Home Plate Farm, as a way to escape the New York City social scene his wife, Helen, despised. On the farm Babe would raise chickens and chop wood and leave his playboy ways behind him. He was also getting bulkier and spending time on the farm would help him get into shape, especially during the long off season. After giving it a try for several years Babe and Helen eventually divorced in 1926 and Babe sold the home shortly after and moved back to New York City. Helen died in a house fire in January 1929, and Babe remarried in April of that same year.
