Babe had skinny legs, small feet, and was often over weight. Babe didn't listen to any one, not even his parents. so his parents left him at ST. Mary's Industrial School for Boys. They thought that St. Mary's would straiten him out, and they did. Brother Matthias was his teacher he helped Babe all the way up until Babe left ST. Mary's to play Baseball.
