Did You Know?
Like the film "The Babe Ruth Story", this film perpetuates the myth that Babe Ruth dramatically pointed to center filed and "called his shot" in the 1932 World Series against the Chicago Cubs. In reality, Ruth did not actually point to the stands. According to both Yankees and Cubs players who were still living and interviewed over the years, they said that while Ruth was at bat, the Cubs players were razzing him on each strike, to which Ruth sarcastically held up a finger for each strike (as shown in the movie) as if to say "It's only strike one", "It's only strike two". Then, according to Cubs catcher, Gabby Harnett, Ruth said "It only takes one to hit it." Ruth called his shot in the sense that he predicted that he was going to hit a home run. But he never actually pointed as shown in the movie. See more
