He looks more like himself in that newspaper photo. Thanks for posting this.

Perhaps I'm getting too cynical and negative. If I start ragging on forum members again, someone please give me a virtual slap.

Not as cool as first homerun but here's another shot of Ruth from first game in Yankee Stadium...

The one offered in Heritage is close - maybe a second before the one in the paper - but it's clearly the same scene.
Graig,

Can I take that to mean that you picked up this beauty? If so, congrats!

No, sir!! It’s a beautiful photo, but luckily, Heritage has great scans on their auction pages. 😀

Whoever came away with it though, they got an amazing photo of a pretty important moment in Babe’s career to enjoy.

Big fan of your work. Thought maybe you picked it up as a future project

Out of curiosity, has anyone seen other newspaper clippings or photos of this particular at-bat?

I have a glass plate negative of Ruth taking batting practice before the game.

Congrats on the glass plate negative...love that shot of him as well.

Any bat experts care to weigh in on this photo? The bat that Eddie Bennett is holding in this shot surprised me quite a bit. Has this photo always been known in the industry, or has this recently come to market?
