1922 Poignant photograph of young Babe Ruth in just his third season with the Yankees and being suspended for opening day. A powerful image from the Kadel and Herbert company and stamped on the back, this has a full paper caption as well. This was the first real scandal that got Ruth in trouble and it would be a sign of things to come for a few years before Ruth got his act together and refocused his career!
