Vintage Photograph Shows Babe Ruth Watching Yankees Play From the Stands During Suspension, 1922

Photo: Imgur

This great vintage photograph from 1922 shows perhaps the most famous baseball player of all time, Babe Ruth, watch one of the opening games for the New York Yankees from the stands during his 6-day suspension. There used to be a rule that World-Series participants could not play in off-season exhibition games, yet Ruth did, so he was suspended for the first 6 games of the season. The photograph was shot in black and white and later colorized by an unknown artist.
