Original c. 1922 photograph of Babe Ruth working on his family farm and hoping to get into great shape for the upcoming season. While it is not mentioned on any paper caption, you have to think the underlying subject would have to be Ruth picking out the wood for his next massive bat! A nearly perfect image in great shape, this is the only example of this photograph we have ever seen!
