In Georgia one time, he stalked a wild turkey for about seven hours before getting close enough to shoot. He finally got a good clean shot and nailed it off a tree with one shot.

    Long subject that I don't believe needs to be rehashed here. Send me a PM if you'd like, but personally, I'd rather not go there.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the info. That's about all I could find on it too. Apparently the film was destroyed in a fire sometime around 1929 and I've had a hard time tracking down stills from the movie. I've seen a couple at sports auctions but I've never seen this one.

    There is the movie info site.

    JACKIE42 doesn't come around here much any more.

    So I thought I would try to help you out on that one. Which I could not find much on it.

    Babe Comes Home

    Thanks for the great photos Jackie42 - I'm looking for any information you might be able to tell me about this particular photo - I've been trying to track it down for awhile and this is the first place I've seen it. Do you have any other information on it - where did you find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Look at the Schaeffer score board. It is Ebbets Field.
    I was half-blind when I asked that. Either that or some silly other excuse. None of those bridge-like things, but the radio towered things which did look amazingly like what I'd seen of Ebbets Field. Then the link itself said Ebbets.

    Oh well, I'll have to delete some of my posts sometime.

    Who's the guy in this pic with Ruth?

    A friend of mine, who's very knowledgeable about the Yankee players from eras ago, said that each of Ruth and Gehrig were victims of childhood "correction", meaning though they were lefties, they wrote and therefore signed right-handed.

    I thought about this for a while. I realized that Ruth was brought up in an orphanage. He probably was forced to use his right hand to write because using the left hand was the sign of the devil
    That may not have to do with being raised in an orphanage. My father, born 46 years after Ruth and not raised in an orphanage, also was a lefty made to switch to writing etc. with his right hand.
