Babe Ruth Swinging In The Gym
Working Out At Artie McGovern’s Gym NYC c.1920’s
Towel Time For Babe Ruth
Babe worked up quite a sweat during one of his many exhibition appearances to benefit the war effort during WWII. Fun fact: During Babe’s playing days with the Yankees (1920-34), the team didn’t wear the familiar “NY” logo on their home jerseys. Instead, they wore plain pinstripes. The “NY” came back to stay from 1936-onward. So, if you see a picture of The Babe wearing that logo, it’s after his retirement.
