Old Footage of Ruth Discovered...

Maybe the timing of this post is a bit off considering we are currently eating, sleeping, and dreaming of playoff victory against the Beantown Sux. However, as my only connection to a community of true baseball fans I thought this could be appreciated by everyone here at HH.

The NY Times reported yesterday the discovery of old video footage of Babe Ruth and the original, old Yankees stadium. Believed to be from 1928, the short footage includes, amongst other things, Ruth striking out and then leaning on his bat like a cane while arguing with the ump. Super grainy but pretty cool for anyone that is a fan of baseball.


Also, check out centerfield. 480 FEET!!!! (I dont even think Torii's homerun last night would have made it out at that length!)
