1925 Was the roughest in the career of Babe Ruth. He feuded with his manager, got sick himself, and caused his wife to have e nervous breakdown at the thought of his constant infidelity. Finally, Mrs. Ruth was unable to take it and tried to rip off her wedding ring after a public affair of Ruth's was announced and in the process she tore open her finger and had to be hospitalized. This is a rare original photograph showing Ruth at her bedside and trying to make amends. A poignant image from quite possibly the lowest point in Ruth's career, issued by Underwood and Underwood and with a full paper caption on the back.
