    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.

    This is what I call a called shot, pointed to RF in the on deck circle, stepped to the plate and hit one out.

    Is it possible those that claim they saw Babe point to centerfied saw this.
    Easy to understand that if he did point at the pitcher who is aligned with centerfield, they could have mistaked that for a point to centerfield.

    According to Gehrig who was on deck Babe blasted Root before hitting the home run.
    Gehrig on deck said Babe yelled at Root, words to this effect...........I'm going to knock the next pitch down your goddamn throat.

    Root tells his side of the story.

    Does it matter if he called the shot.I don't think he said that in any words. But what he did was more than enough.
    It was so evident that it was the battle of the wills, the Cub bench and a partisan crowd of Cub fans, against The Babe hooting The Babe and even tossing a few lemons on the field when he came to bat.

    Babe still talking, even down two strikes. Who would have the last word.

    Here it is, The Bam getting all over the Cub bench.
