That's not a slip up! If you listen closely, that was done on purpose. A fifth grader (or whatever grade they're in), doesn't always have the greatest spelling. Plus, they comment about how it sounds like "babie ruthie".

I have a feeling that the was spelled wrong intentionally because it was written by the children who knew "The Great Bambino" as a hero, but not "unimportant" things to them such as the way to spell his name.

Not a mix-up. It's clearly done on purpose because if you listen to Smalls in the background while the ball is being written on you can clearly hear him say, "Baby Ruth-e?" as if he knew it was spelled wrong.
