America Comes of Age  Where Dreams are Born t has been called the great American Pastime. From sand lots to vacant lots, there isn't a young boy ... or girl, for that matter, that hasn't had the dream. The dream of being up to bat, in the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded and "touching them all" to the deafening roar of the crowd. Baseball is truly as American as Apple Pie and the Fourth of July. Where Dreams are Born is a journey back .. To when legendary ballplayers were mere mortals ..

Thomas Ince Scandal 1924 One of Hollywood's most enduring and juicy scandals occurred on November 19, 1924. On that date producer/director Thomas Ince died suddenly on The Oneida, William Randolph Hearst's luxury yacht. Ince and several other celebrities were aboard the boat for a belated get-together for Ince's 42nd birthday. The official police report says Ince died of a heart attack. However, most Hollywood historians think the truth was more sinister. For years stories circulated that Ince had been shot to death by a jealous and enraged Hearst. One version has Ince getting way too friendly with Hearst's mistress, Marion Davies. Another version has Charlie Chaplin getting caught in the act with Marion--and Ince being accidentally shot by Hearst with a bullet meant for Chaplin. Chaplin's secretary stated she saw Ince being carried out of the yacht with a bullet hole in his head. The first edition of the next day's Los Angeles Times declared that Ince had been shot to death. Later editions of the newspaper had all references to gunplay expunged--an indication of how powerful Hearst was. Ince's body was quickly cremated, eliminating any chance his remains could be exhumed. Louella Parsons, a small-time entertainment writer from New York, was also aboard The Oneida. Immediately after this incident, she became a star writer in Hearst's syndicated newspaper chain. Was she rewarded for maintaining her silence about what happened on The Oneida that fateful day?

Photo of Slender Babe Ruth Many modern baseball fans often wrongly assume Babe Ruth was an out-of-shape ballplayer. Actually, he was only overweight in the twilight years of his career. Check out this photo of the slender George Herman Ruth. I date it from 1920 or 1921.

Viktor Tikhonov - USSR Hockey Coach One of the most familiar faces of Soviet Union hockey was the dour puss of coach Viktor Tikhonov who ran the Central Red Army club team and the Soviet National team with an iron fist and almost unchecked success for 20 years. Tikhonov was born on June 4, 1930. As a player, Tikhonov was a defenceman with the Soviet Air Force and Dynamo Moscow clubs, but he wasn't well known internationally until he became the head coach of both the Central Red Army team and the Soviet Union's national team in 1977. At one point Red Army won 13 consecutive Soviet Elite League titles--which isn't all that surprising considering Tikhonov had the authority of a Red Army general and could immediately draft any player into the armed forces if he showed promise. The USSR won eight IIHF world titles under Tikhonov plus Olympic gold medals in 1984, 1988 and 1992. The USSR's national team also won the 1979 Challenge Cup and 1981 Canada Cup. Tikhonov had power over his players' lives and used it to control every aspect of his team. They routinely trained together for 50 weeks per year while living in army barracks. Canadian hockey great Phil Esposito said the so-called Soviet "amateurs" were more professional than NHL players. Humorless and ruthless, Tikhonov was known for his dictatorial coaching style. He exercised control over his players' lives. His expected absolute obedience--or else. His players quietly called him "the last Stalinist." With tongue-in-cheek humor, western media often referred to Tikhonov as "Chuckles." Tikhonov constantly feared his players would defect if they ever got the slightest chance. Anyone he merely suspected of defecting would be left off teams planning to travel outside the Iron Curtain. In 1991, for instance, he cut Pavel Bure, Valeri Zelepukin, Evgeny Davydov, and Vladimir Konstantinov just before the 1991 Canada Cup. All of them had been drafted by NHL teams, and Tikhonov suspected they were flight risks. Even after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Tikhonov stayed on as the national team coach of Russia for a few more years, but the newer players rebelled against his harsh authoritarian ways. Tikhonov mellowed slighty before going into retirement in 1996. After his retirement, Tikhonov lobbied the Russian government for more attention and better financing for the national team. His grandson plays on the current Russian national squad. Tikhonov died in November 2014.

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.

Eddie Waitkus Shooting 1949 Ballplayer Eddie Waitkus was the shooting victim of an obsessed female fan. Waitkus had broken into the National League with the Chicago Cubs in 1941 but was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in 1949. Nineteen-year-old Ruth Ann Steinhagen of Chicago had become obsessed with Waitkus as a 14-year-old. When he was traded to the Phillies, she snapped. During a Phillies' road trip to Chicago on June 14, 1949, Steinhagen checked into the Edgewater Beach Hotel where the Phillies were staying. She left a note for Waitkus to come to her hotel room to discuss urgent business. Believing the note to be from a friend of a friend, Waitkus arrived at Steinhagen's room and was invited in. Steinhagen briefly excused herself and returned with a rifle. Steinhagen blurted, 'You're not going to bother me anymore!' Then she shot Waitkus in the chest and calmly phoned the hotel's front desk to report the shooting. Waitkus nearly died on the operating table several times, but pulled through. He continued his major league career until 1955. Steinhagen was never charged with a crime. Instead she was committed to a mental institution. After three years she was deemed sane and released. Waitkus' shooting inspired Bernard Malamud's story 'The Natural.' Waitkus died in 1972, at age 53, of esophogeal cancer. Steinhagen is said to still live on Chicago's north side.
