    This is the game that followed the called shot game, starting pitcher, Guy Bush. In the called shot game Bush from the Cub bench was Babe's chief tormentor. Bush was so far out of the dugout yelling at Babe, ump had to order him to get back to the bench.
    Certainly no accident, Bush hits Babe on the arm in his first at bat. Here we see Babe on his way to first base after being hit. Making flicking motions on his hit arm, as though to brush away a pesky insect. Gehrig said Babe yelled to Bush, " hey lop ears, was that your fast ball."
    Actually Babe was hit hard, after the game his arm was badly bruised and swollen. Bush was knocked out before the first inning ended.
