He was only with the club for a short time before before he was called up to majors in Boston. In the next 5 years, Ruth led the Red Sox to three champions. He found help in the New York Yankees, which agreed in December 1919.
In 1919, while with the Red Sox, Ruth set a single-season home run record of 29. In 1920, his first year in New York, he knocked 54 home runs.
