    Oh yeah, that's a great one.
    I actually posted a larger edit of it a while back: Post#1116 7/09/2010 - Lou & Babe - 1932 World Series

    1932 Play Ball With Babe Ruth: "Slide, Babe, Slide"
    Universal Pictures Production Still #B.R.1-9
    Here's a new edit originating from the Universal Pictures "Play Ball With Babe Ruth" short-film series.
    You can watch the whole movie here: Play Ball with Babe Ruth: Slide Babe Slide (1932).
    If you fast-forward to 3:25, there's a scene that looks similar to the production picture (albeit without Babe). I wish the film was as clear & clean as the picture!

    1932 Play Ball With Babe Ruth: "Slide, Babe, Slide" Pt.2
    Universal Pictures Production Still #B.R.1-13
    Here's another new edit originating from the Universal Pictures "Play Ball With Babe Ruth" short-film series.
    You can clearly see how Babe shredded his pants from his sliding lesson. I believe they've spotted a UFO in this one (or maybe a pop-fly is on the way).

    1932 Play Ball With Babe Ruth: "Slide, Babe, Slide" Pt.3
    Universal Pictures Production Still #B.R.1-8
    Here's the third edit originating from the Universal Pictures "Play Ball With Babe Ruth" short-film series.
    This one takes place a little earlier in the film, evidenced by Babe still wearing his jacket and his non-ripped pants.
    Looks like he's giving pointers about sliding into 2nd and applying the tag.

    Here's the fourth edit originating from the Universal Pictures "Play Ball With Babe Ruth" short-film series.
    Looks like Babe is imparting some pitching advice in this one.

    1932 Play Ball With Babe Ruth: "Slide, Babe, Slide" Pt.5
    Universal Pictures Production Still #B.R.2-27
    This one might not specifically be from the "Slide, Babe, Slide" short-film, but it's certainly from the same day. You can see all the kids (and then some) from the ballpark scenes. I cropped out the top of this picture (just more of the school) in order to bring all the people closer into the frame, which also created a panoramic effect.

    Here's the final picture from the set. It's clearly not from one of the movies, although it's a classic nonetheless.

    Here's a great pic that shows Connie Mack, The Babe and Jimmie Foxx hanging out in the dugout during the '34 Tour Of Japan. I'm not certain where this pic was snapped during the Tour, but it seems like this is either before the game started or the US Team was batting. Also, that might be Lou Gehrig with his hand on his face next to Foxx.
    Looks Manila to me. The dugout is quite similar to the dugouts at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium. Lou Gehrig hit the first-ever homer at the stadium. The Bambino was the second.

    Didn't know Connie Mack was part of the tour. Great find! Great photo!

    Babe Welcomes The Crow (ca.1932)
    Ruth Family Apartment - Riverside Drive, NYC
    Here is Babe welcoming new Yankees shortstop Frank "Crow" Crosetti. It offers another peak into the massive collection of photos that were housed there. There wasn't a specific date attached to the original photo, but Crosetti played with the team starting in 1932. So I'm guessing that either Babe is welcoming him to the team or this could have occurred during/after the 1932 World Series.

    Babe barnstorming tour. Often when barnstorming players would get into uniform at hotel and walk to playing field.
    Looks very lean, has to be early 1920's

    Babe Asleep In The Laundry Cart
    Here's a new edit of this classic photo, larger and clearer than ever. So is Babe sleeping one off, a few too many perhaps? Judging from the uniform, it’s more likely that this was a promo photo for one of the many baseball short films he made.

    My apology, those two posts were meant to be posted on a Babe page. Will try to delete them.

    I go with that BSMILE, a promo.
    Did not like what I once saw on a Babe bio video. Narrator stated that Babe often had to be carried home after a night on the town, that was an exaggeration. But as those words were spoken that pic was displayed on the screen as though there was some connection.

    Between the pose, the original edit & the uniform, it was obviously done by a movie studio. The word "LAUNDRY" isn't even really there, it was crudely added by an artist/editor.
