This vintage photograph from 1925 shows New York Yankee Babe Ruth—perhaps the greatest player of all-time—posing in Yankees Stadium with a group of fans. According to the photo's uploader on reddit,"[Ruth] was a popular figure in the African American community because of his willingness to treat them as he would white fans, along with rumors of him being biracial."
