    Over at the official Lefty Gomez website, there's a short video promoting the book that has some amazing footage of Babe and the 1934 Tour Of Japan Team.

    Thanks for posting BSmile!...Great video. I just ordered the book.

    What a surprise! I've got a little connection to the book: On the web site, check out the second picture in the photo gallery. It's a picture of the Yankee pitching staff from 1936. The credit for the photo says: "From the Boston Public Library, Leslie Jones collection." I actually did the player identifications for this photo! Even though my name isn't mentioned, I'll consider this my 15 minutes of fame!

    Thanks Shoeless,
    I was surprised to find it...maybe more surprised that I hadn't seen it sooner.

    The book looks like it might be good, but I'm really hoping that more of that film footage gets released!

    Babe & Claire Take In A Game
    Rebels Stadium - Dallas, TX - July 9, 1947
    It's an American Legion game that everybody is watching, all part of Babe's extensive Good Will Tour that was sponsored by the Ford Motor Co. I posted a different version of this pic back in April 2010 here: Babe Visits Dallas - July 1947 Pt.4---That could possibly be Ford Frick sharing their box seat.

    Babe Boxes Four Boys At Once!
    Artie McGovern's Gym, NYC - c.1933
    Well, he's not really going to fight them...although this pic with four young boxing hopefuls is a classic. That's Artie McGovern looking on behind them.

    Looks like Eddie Munster is ready to sock it to the Babe!

    Yup, that's Babe's wife Claire lighting his pipe moments before the pic in the previous post was taken.

    Babe Gives Gary Cooper A Ride
    Samuel Goldwyn Studios Back Lot - Spring 1942
    Taken during the filming of "The Pride Of The Yankees". Gary Cooper looks a little nervous on those handle bars! I wonder if that bike (with the personalized name plate) is sitting in somebody's collection these days.

    Gary would not be in that position if he knew anything about the Bam's driving habits or record.
    I have a folder containing about a dozen speeding violations..........that we know of, three roll over accidents, demlolished cars.
    One accident in Boston, the very young Babe, trying to thread the needle in his new car, between two street cars.............going in opposite directions. Car demolished.

    Haha...yeah, although I get the feeling they didn't actually ride around. They probably just posed for the picture.

    Agreed, just a photo, no ride.

    Babe & Lou On The Campaign Trail For Al Smith
    Columbus, Ohio - October 23, 1928
    It was 84 years ago today that the guys were looking dapper in their derby hats (also known as the 'bowler' in the UK) while campaigning for Al Smith's eventual losing effort for the 1928 U.S. Presidency.

    The Babe Hits His 700th
    Detroit, Michigan - July 13, 1934
    Here's a new pic of Babe in the clubhouse after hitting his 700th HR. It's a bit of a different angle from my original post a while back. The wire tag doesn't mention who the 'youth' is, but I had the tag from a different photo (ACME Cleveland Bureau) that tells us his name was Leonard Beals. He managed to get 20 bucks and an autographed baseball from The Babe, not bad!

    Hitting Lessons From The Babe
    1939 New York World's Fair
    That's The Babe on the mic giving some baseball advice while Christy Walsh is ushering the previous young hitter out of harm's way.

    1930's NBC Radio Promo Pic
    It's hard to pinpoint an exact date on this one, but it really doesn't look like the 1940's version of Babe, so I'm guessing 1930's (possibly towards the end of his playing days).

    Movie Star At Yankee-Detroit Crucial Series
    Yankee Stadium - August 14, 1934
    Of course, Babe was well acquainted with Harold Lloyd having played a part in his classic 1928 silent movie 'Speedy'.

    A Meeting Of Legends In Their Own Time
    Knute Rockne, The Babe & Pop Warner - Yankee Stadium - July 19, 1928
    As you'd might expect, Babe's response to this legendary meeting was to hit 2 HR's vs. the White Sox that afternoon: Boxscore 7/19/1928: NYY 6- ChiSox 4

    Candy Time For The Big Train & The Bambino
    'Ruth's Home Run Candy' Promo Pic - Yankee Stadium 1926
    Here's a fresh re-edit of a photo that Babefan posted a while back (Thanks!). My research brings me to the conclusion that this photo took place at Yankee Stadium during the 1926 season. The socks that Walter Johnson is wearing are unique to the 1926 season.
