Q: What team did Babe Ruth play for before joining the Boston Red Sox?

A: Impressed with Ruth's pitching abilities, Joe Engel, a former Mount St. Mary's student, along with a teacher at St. Mary's, Brother Gilbert, brought Ruth to the attention of Jack Dunn, owner and manager of the then minor-league Baltimore Orioles. After watching Ruth pitch in a workout for half an hour, Dunn signed Ruth to a contract. He signed a contract for $250 a month on February 14, 1914.
