Babe Ruth Welcomes The Crow (ca.1932)
Ruth Family Apartment - Riverside Drive, NYC
Here is Babe welcoming new Yankees shortstop Frank “Crow” Crosetti to his New York City apartment. It offers another peak into the massive collection of photos that were housed there. There wasn’t a specific date attached to the original photo, but Crosetti played with the team starting in 1932. So I’m guessing that either Babe is welcoming him to the team or this could have occurred during/after the 1932 World Series.
