Imagine that you could meet a famous athlete or entertainer. Who would you like most to meet, and why? Use specific examples and reasons to explain your answer.

The athlete I would most like to meet would be the late baseball player Babe Ruth. His name is still synonymous with baseball, partly because he was the first “superstar” player. Ruth was an original in many ways, a trailblazer who broke the rules and created a model for later star athletes to follow. Countless mysteries surround any such famous figure. Despite the fact that Ruth has been dead for many years, I sometimes wish there were a chance to ask him a few questions.

For example, who really made Ruth a media superstar? Did his stardom just “happen.” with no particular planning, or did someone guide Ruth to fame through careful publicity? Did he become famous merely because he came along at the right time, when sports fans were seeking a new hero? Also. Ruth was a hero and role model to a generation of young Americans. The whole country watched his every move. Did he feel uncomfortable with fame, or was he indifferent to it? It would be interesting to hear Ruth’s own responses to these questions.

What is more, Ruth’s early life is something of a mystery. There are some unresolved questions about his ancestry. Where exactly did he come from? We know he grew up in Baltimore, but many puzzles surround his origins and his early years. How did a newborn baby like any other grow up to be the Babe? If it were possible, an interview with Babe Ruth might clear up some of these riddles.
