Babe Ruth Cameo in Speedy The 1928 silent comedy, Speedy, starring Harold Lloyd has an extended cameo appearance by Babe Ruth. In this scene Lloyd plays a baseball-loving cab driver who picks up Ruth as his first fare. If you look very, very quickly at 3:43 you can spot Lou Gehrig walking past Lloyd's taxi!

Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig The scariest sight ever to face a big league pitcher: Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, pictured here in a photo I'd date around 1931. In 1927 Babe Ruth hit a record 60 homers to lead the American League. Gehrig was second with 47. In third place was another Yankee, Tony Lazzeri, with a mere 18.

Lou Gehrig Streak Reaches 2000 Lou Gehrig's remarkable streak of consecutive MLB games played reached 2,000 during the 1938 season, as this playful publicity photo shows. Early in the 1939 season the streak would end in Detroit at 2,130. Two years later Gehrig was dead from ALS at age 38.

Ruth-Gehrig 1927 Barnstorming Tour In the days before major league ballplayers were millionaires, many earned much-needed extra cash by engaging in post-season 'barnstroming tours.' Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig were no exception. Following the 1927 season, the spectacular Yankee duo embarked on a westward tour through cities and towns large and small. They competed with and against local teams in front of huge star-struck crowds. Ruth, the main attraction, got a huge percentage of the gates and pocketed about $70,000 for the tour. Gehrig got a flat $10,000--not bad considering the New York Yankees only paid him $8,000 for the 1927 season.

Four MLB Greats - 1928 This impromptu photo shows Lou Gehrig, Tris Speaker, Ty Cobb, and Babe Ruth before a New York Yankees-Philadelphia Athletics game in 1928. The photo may have been taken on Opening Day; the heavy jackets worn by Gehrig and Ruth suggest a cool temperature. Not a bad core of players to start a team, I'd say! (Imagine what their salaries would be today!) The A's gave the Yankees a darn good run for the AL pennant in 1928 but came up just a bit short, winning 98 games and finishing in second spot just 2.5 games out of first place. The Yankees took 16 of 22 games versus the A's in 1928. Speaker and Cobb were both winding down their spectacular careers that season. Some baseball scholars believe their advancing ages--they were both in their forties--may have been a hindrance to the A's. Speaker could no longer play center field effectively. He was used mostly as a pinch hitter by the middle of July and appeared in no games at all after August. The Athletics' younger stars (fellows like Al Simmons, Mickey Cochrane, and Lefty Grove) led them to three straight AL pennants from 1929 through 1931.

Baseball Broadcaster Tom Cheek Tom Cheek was the smooth radio voice of the Toronto Blue Jays from the team's inception in 1977 until 2004. Largely unknown outside of Canada, his most famous call was of Joe Carter's World Series-winning home run in 1993: "Touch 'em all, Joe! You'll never hit a bigger home run in your life!" Remarkably, Cheek never missed a single Jays' broadcast until June 4, 2004 when he had to attend his father's funeral. His absence that night ended his streak of 4,306 consecutive regular-season games at the mike. Sadly, less than two weeks after his father's death, Cheek was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. He left the broadcast booth to undergo treatment. He made only sporadic appearances at Jays' games after that. He did have a Lou Gehrig-type farewell appearance at Toronto's SkyDome in September 2004. The ceremony was sad and poignant. (Ken Singleton, a New York Yankees announcer, was so teary that he had to leave the broadcast booth.) Cheek died in October 2005 at the age of 66. He is honored in the Blue Jays' "Ring of Honor" at the SkyDome (now known as Rogers Centre) alongside the number 4,306.
