|The Right Spot for Babe Ruth's "Called
In the third inning of Game 3 of the 1932 World
Series, Babe Ruth supposedly pointed to centerfield
with his bat as a way of saying to Cubs pitcher
Charlie Root that he was going to hit a home run
into the centerfield bleachers.
This is a depiction of The Babe supposedly pointing to centerfield and "calling" his shot. Of course, Ruth did hit a home run on the next pitch -- into the centerfield bleachers. This ticket is from that game. What’s neat about it, is that it’s a ticket from the centerfield bleachers. Whoever had this ticket most likely saw Ruth’s historic homer coming right at him!

shot." Lou Gehrig, #4, was the next batter
and hit a home run on Root's first pitch.
