Gunmen rob Babe Ruth Museum -- again

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The house of Ruth was robbed again Saturday. For the third time in two weeks, two masked gunmen held up employees at the Babe Ruth Museum and Birthplace, police said.

The robbers, one of whom wielded a silver-plated handgun, made off with an undetermined amount of cash. Investigators believe the same pair committed all three robberies, police spokesman Sgt. Scott Rowe said."I think they'll keep doing this until they get caught," Rowe said.

The New York Yankees slugger was born in 1895 in Baltimore. His birthplace is a few blocks from the Baltimore Orioles' current stadium at Camden Yards.
