Thanks willowGrove, The Babe is one of my favorite characters, especially since I took a year off and toured with a traveling Babe Ruth exhibit. Meeting many people that actually met him really made me appreciate him as a person instead of the cartoon character he became - not that the 2 were that far apart! That picture you posted of the Orioles in Fayetteville is just a great team shot, so unposed and loose, it really brings out the fun in the game.
