    I'm still not 100% sure where it was taken. This one is a version that I only partially edited...
    I hope Babe was nice enough to shake that guy's hand...

    The Babe Poses With "Dusty" Rhodes & Fiancée
    83 Yrs Ago Today - Salt Lake City - October 21, 1931
    Obviously this isn't the "Dusty" Rhodes who was the pinch-hitting hero for the Giants in the 1954 World Series. ~ AP Wire: "Yankee Pitcher To Wed - The marriage of Gordon "Dusty" Rhodes, New York Yankees pitcher, to Miss Leah Riser, University Of Utah sorority girl, will take place Oct.24, it was announced at Salt Lake City upon Rhodes' recent visit to that city with Babe Ruth, his teammate. Rhodes met his future bride while both were students at the University Of Utah."

    Babe Ruth Gives Jai-Alai A Try
    76 Yrs Ago Today - New York City - October 21, 1938
    I think whoever wrote this original tag copy wasn't quite clear about how Jai-Alai was actually played!
    ~ Wire Tag: "Batter Up! - It isn't a fungo that Babe Ruth, baseball's famed King of Swat, is swinging here. An interested spectator at the Jai-Lai matches (a fast game imported from Latin America) last night, he took off his coat and tried a couple of swings at the ball."

    Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Barnstorming Program
    87 Yrs Ago Today - Oakland, CA - October 23, 1927
    Funny how the printers took it upon themselves to 'correct' the spelling of Bustin' to Busting and Larrupin' to Larruping.

    The Barry Halper auction featured a derby signed by Gehrig that was supposedly the very hat from this photo.
    (two posts up, sorry)
