little piece at NYT tonight on the day Babe Ruth ran into a wall and got knocked out for five minutes (then went out and got two hits). Great photo and note that it's believed young Buck Leonard, later a Negro league legend, was attending his first game that day--and sitting in the segregated section in photo near where the Babe passed out.
