Babe Bop a Lou Lou
Great piece in NYT for baseball history buffs and collectors (such as me) on newly discovered newsreel footage of Babe Ruth--plus a first look ever at Lou Gehrig who was about to start his long tenure. A few charming seconds of Babe on steps of dugout with Lou, apparently not nervous despite momentous days, grinning on the bench behind him. Follow the link in the piece to the original postings by the Hall of Fame's researcher also.
