Wilson Birthdate: July 6 Character You're Playing: Babe Ruth Favorite Sport: Basketball Favorite Sports Team: 80's [Los Angeles] Lakers [NBA] Favorite Sports Hero: Babe Ruth and [basketball player] Magic Johnson Sports Played Growing Up: Football and Track Favorite Sporting-Event Snack: Pizza Show you made your Broadway debut in: Gore Vidal's The Best Man Favorite Broadway show (and why): Avenue Q. It was funny as hell. Did you meet and/or hear from your Bronx Bombers counterpart or their family? I got in touch with Linda Ruth Tosetti (Babe Ruth's granddaughter). She has been incredibly gracious and generous with her immense knowledge and passion for her grandfather. Most memorable moment from Bronx Bombers: It's hard to pick a favorite moment. Working with the cast and researching and playing Babe has been an incredible gift.
