    Babe Ruth At The Dentist Before A Double Header vs. Red Sox
    ⚾ 84 Years Ago Today - Boston, MA - August 5, 1931
    ~ In case you were wondering, The Babe managed to play in both games that day, he had 5 hits including his 29th home run! - - - (Wire Tag) “Many a big league pitcher wishes he could have Babe Ruth, Yankees slugger, as helpless as Dr. W.S. Ross has him here in his office at Boston, Mass. It’s all voluntary, however, as baseball’s big gun had to repair his bridges and went posthaste to the dentist. 8/5/31”

    "By common consent, Ruth was the hardest hitter of history; a fine fielder, if not a finished one; an inspired base runner, seeming to do the right thing without thinking. He had the most perfect co-ordination of any human animal I ever knew." - Hugh Fullerton, 1936 (Chicago sports writer, 1893-1930's)

    The Babe Meets Up With The Brown Bomber
    78 Years Ago Today - Pompton Lakes, N.J. - August 25, 1937
    ~ (Wire Tag) “Babe Ruth looks over Joe Louis’ weapons after Joe hit one for the man who was once known as something of a hitter himself. While The Babe watched Joe spar, Louis leaned over the ropes and remarked, "I’m going to hit one this time for you, Babe.” He did, and sparmate Tiger Hairston was dazed. Thursday night he defends his title against Tommy Farr, the boxing pride of England.”
