I haven't seen the video yet since I'm at work but this should be incredible. According to the story, Major League baseball has less than an hour of Ruth film in its archives.

I love it when gems like these are found. Can't wait to watch it when I get home.
Finally had the chance to watch the video, even though it was short and there was no sound it was still incredible. Hopefully you baseball fans have a chance to watch this beauty and enjoy it as much as I did.

Wow, that is absolutely insane that, that was found. They only have around an hour of actual film and do find this is pretty crazy and quite frankly it was pretty surreal to watch it.

I'm no Yankees fan but Babe Ruth is the God of baseball. He's an iconic figure and seeing him like that is mind blowing.

Nice! It was interesting seeing their shirts with the Bustin Babes and Larrupin Lous on the front :lol:.
