CRAP !!
Although the name of the candy bar sounds like the name of the famous
baseball player Babe Ruth, the Curtiss Candy Company traditionally claimed
that it was named after President Grover Cleveland's daughter, Ruth
Cleveland.
The candy maker, located on the same street as Wrigley Field, named the bar
"Baby Ruth" in 1921, as Babe Ruth's fame was on the rise, 24 years after
Cleveland had left the White House, and 17 years after his daughter, Ruth,
had died.
The company did not negotiate an endorsement deal with Ruth, and many saw
the company's story about the origin of the name to be a devious way to
avoid having to pay the baseball player any royalties. Curtiss successfully
shut down a rival bar that was approved by, and named for, Ruth, on the
grounds that the names were too similar.
