Last Home Run?
Well, his "official" last home run was May 25, 1935, at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, off of Guy Bush...number 714
But Johnny Sain gave up Ruths very last ever home run in war time exhibition game, I forget when this was off the top of my head but I can verify this when I get home...

May 25 1935, as a member of the Boston Braves, Babe hit 3 homer`s.Some say # 714 wnt over 600ft, the only ball ever hit out of old Forbes Field.Any truth to that Gehrig?
Babe Ruth stroked the last three home runs of his career at Forbes Field on Saturday, May 25,1935 in front of about 10,000 fans. It was reported in the papers several days later that the final blow, which was the first ever to clear the then 10 year old right field roof, came to rest on the roof of 318 Boquet Street, a rowhouse which survives to this day. The ball was reportedly retrieved by Gus Miller, then chief of the Forbes Field ushers.
