    • The Babe Takes A Cut -- And Likes It!
      Babe's NYC Apartment - February 7, 1933
      Here we have another example of a Babe Ruth birthday that is technically incorrect. The press tag mentions, "...on the occassion of his thirty-ninth birthday." It is of course, his 38th. That little bit of info might have played better in his negotiations, don't ya' think?

      • Baseball's Forgotten Man
        NYC Apartment - December 1935
        Sadly, no call would come...until 1938 with the Dodgers as a coach/gate attraction.

        • Buzz Meets The Babe
          Baltimore, MD - July 5, 1932
          A classic shot from the day that minor league superstar Buzz Arlett met the Babe. The Yankees had traveled to Baltimore that day for an exhibition game, won by the Orioles 9-2. (Buzz homered in the game). Check out this excellent article about Buzz from SABR here: Link: Buzz Arlett

          • Starting A New Year In More Ways Than One
            New York City - February 7, 1931
            The gang is getting ready to sail to Florida on the S.S. Shawnee for spring training and for Babe's 37th birthday...which is (of course) actually his 36th.

                • Thanks BSmile! I appreciate the welcome!

                  I apologize if this is a bit off-topic (since it's not photo-related; it is, however, Babe-related). I have been trying in vain to find a copy of the 1991 TV movie Babe Ruth starring Stephen Lang as Babe:

                  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101388/

                  It has been proving nearly impossible to find! I have seen the John Goodman film and I know it's a bit more sentimental because it was a major motion picture. I've wanted to see the Lang TV movie because it was based on Robert Creamer's book. Would anyone here happen to have a copy of it or know where I can get one?

                    FAN, I have searched and searched and have not had any luck. What really bothers me is that I am almost certain I did tape it years ago on a VHS tape but can not find it.
                    Bendix and Goodman films should both be burned and never shown. They both portray the Babe as a big clumsy oaf.

                    That Lang movie is a great one, even some of the stats they speak about in the movie were right on.
                    Still searching.

                      That's what I've heard too. It's a shame because TV movies are notoriously hard to find; only a handful make it to DVD and that's only when there's a major star in them. I highly doubt this one will ever be shown again, much less see a DVD release.

                        They really milked all they could get out of The Babe, right to the very end. When he signed his contract as a coach for the Dodgers, included was a clause that in home games he was to take batting practice with the Dodger players. I guess the Dodgers figured they might draw a few hundred or more to the game if they knew thay could get to see the Bam, take some swings.
                        I'm sure the Babe didn't mind, it's the fact that the Dodgers inserted that in his contract, he was obligated.

                        • Yeah of course. Wasn't he the reason Baseball didn't completely tank after the Black Sox scandal?

                            That was probably over stated but I'm sure he did his share of drawing fans out to the parks.

                              Have you ever been to the birthplace museum in Baltimore? I'm planning a trip there in the near future.

                                Yes, a few years ago. The home is set up with old style furnishings in accord with the time Babe lived there. Also depending on what time of year you go there, take in the Inner Harbor, really nice.
