Hey, Babe, Take A Wal(K) on the Wild Side

If you're a baseball fan, you may remember the publicity around the recent discovery of a few seconds of new (old) home movie footage of Babe Ruth in his prime at Yankee Stadium, striking out.  Also, a glimpse of Lou Gehrig.  Coverage noted the efforts by archivists, and Keith Olbermann, to  pin down when it was shot.  Now the NYT just reported that the code has been cracked.  See their write-up and video here.  It has link to the blog of guy who cracked the code. The date:  September 9, 1928.  Other Babe footage follows.  See part of my baseball card collection from that era here.
