    Here's a slightly larger image of the team card...


    and here's a close-up of the "Babe" himself as he appears on that very card...

    I wonder what itís like after death. Probíly itís like it is bífore birth. Is it nothing? Non-existence? Thatís not hard tíunderstand, but itís hard for people tíaccept. Itís hard for them to imagine not existing because all of their memories are of their existence, not non-existence. Aní people ainít too crazy about the idea of themselves not existing. - Harvey Pekar, ďShort Weekend: A Story About the Cosmic and the Ordinary,Ē American Splendor #3, 1978.

    Incredible shot of "The Pride Of The Yankees"

    This is just an amazing picture taken during the filming of "The Pride Of The Yankees". That's the Babe shaking hands with Gary Cooper in the middle during a re-creation of Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day.

    Plus, a picture of The Babe exiting the dugout during the filming of another scene in the movie......and a picture of Bob Meusel, Christy Walsh & The Babe at Wrigley Field (Los Angeles) during another filming day for "The Pride Of the Yankees".

    Cheers! ~B

    (even MORE to come.....)

    I always wondered, what was Babe thinking reenacting a sad event in his life. He is there on the field on the real Lou Gehrig Day and then he goes through the motions again in a movie.

    They did have some friction in their career when the women in their lives faced off but I believe they both cared very much for each other, they showed it on that day.

    Regardless of what woman was right or wrong it's a shame it caused Babe and Lou to get some distance between them.

    What choice did Lou or Babe have, they had to take sides.

    Great quote, Sultan...I read a while ago that visiting Man o' War at his stud farm was popular for tourists after his retirement. His handler would bring him out and give a brief speech about the special qualities of the horse (I believe that the man had an accent that made it sound like he was saying "Manny Wah"). After making such a visit, a British writer said that those few minutes alone made travelling across the Atlantic worthwhile.
    That horse just looked different...stood out like Frank Howard or Frank Thomas.

    As for Lou and Babe at Lou's farewell, I can't help but feel from those photos that Gehrig was not very comfortable...he seemed to be tolerating Babe more than returning the embrace. I know that Lou was a reserved person, but I wonder if he really forgave Babe at that moment.

    1930 Nyy

    Here's the 1930 New York Yankees at spring training in St. Petersburg, Florida. Col. Ruppert shows up once again. Funny thing, only two players aren't wearing their pinstripe jerseys:
    Babe and Lou. What...are they "special"!?! (ummm....yes....yes they are)
    Hahaha...Cheers! ~B

    I tried putting this one though my Adobe photoshop, try to enlarge but it but I might lose some sharpness. The smaller original is not very sharp. Not much can be done with this one.

    Looks like George was pumping some iron but it's natural, look at the arms and he's young in this pic.

    Heh heh... reminds me of that episode of "Odd Couple" where Felix decides to try his hand at being a writer because the writer's name is in larger type than the photographer's... "TEXT BY ARTHUR DUNLOW, Photographs by Felix Unger."
