This incredible vintage film from 1931 shows New York Yankees players Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig during batting practice in a smooth 60fps framerate. Restored by YouTuber and historian Guy Jones, the short HD film was made possible due to the slow-motion captures of old Fox Movietone sound cameras which were very technologically advanced for their time.
On April 11, 1931, Fox Movietone sound cameras made slow-motion captures of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig at batting practice during an exhibition practice in Brooklyn, New York. With modern technology, we can witness this footage adjusted to a normal speed which results in a very high framerate. I've also included more footage of the practice (shot at typical fps) and the original un-edited slow-mo captures.
