We'd be remiss if we didn't quote the priceless poetry in this tribute to Yankee newcomer Babe Ruth...


Now Babe Ruth's a treasure beyond early measure

Down in the depths of all hearts, boys

To reach his position is youth's one ambition

the cynosure of all their hearts joys

To swat like Ruth is their dream night and day

His brilliant homers stole their hearts away

Ruth! Ruth! oh you Babe Ruth

You are in all our themes

Your kind face holds a place

In every Yankee lads dreams they love you

Your true sharp eyes of blue

Idol of all forsooth

Heaven above

Can't change the love

We hold for you Babe Ruth.
