    Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Barnstorming In Iowa
    87 Years Ago Today - October 17, 1927
    ~ Held at Western League Park in Des Moines, this game was part of a barnstorming tour that was set up by Babe’s agent, Christy Walsh. It took the Bustin’ Babes & Larrupin’ Lou’s from coast to coast in the days just after the New York Yankees triumph in the 1927 World Series.

    I believe the idea was that Babe and Lou travelled with the uniforms for their two teams and local players would fill out the rosters for the various teams. If I have that right, brilliant move by Christy because the locals got to play with their heroes AND he didn't have to pay/transport any ML players except for Babe and Lou!
