On October 1, 1932—exactly 80 years ago this Monday—during the fifth inning of Game 3 of the World Series at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Yankees slugger Babe Ruth, facing a 2-2 count against Cubs pitcher Charlie Root, looked over to the Cubs dugout then appeared to point toward center field.
Ruth hit the next pitch 440 feet, over the center field wall.
The home run broke a 4-4...
The resemblance is absolutely amazing.
Willis “Buster” Gardner of Oberlin, Ohio won a Babe Ruth look-a-like contest as part of the 85th birthday celebration this week for the famous Gallagher’s steakhouse in New York City — a restaurant whose walls are lined with 700 photos of actors, politicians, business leaders and athletes — such as Ruth.
