Were there ever any Kidnap, Extortion, or death threats made against the Babe in his career?

None that I've ever heard of. Which isn't to say that they couldn't have happened...in fact, as famous as The Babe was, I'd be surprised if any of those hadn't happened. Although, if they did...nothing ever came of it AND they were certainly not well publicized. Anybody else out there know of something like this that could have occured?

Wonderful, fantastic photo, BSmile. I had had it but nowhere near as wonderfully, beautiful as this one that you have transformed, via your magic wand of editing mojo. :applaud::applaud::bowdown::bowdown:

Wow, Cobb look so old. He's only 37 in the 1924 photo but he looks like he's 55 years old.

Wow, Cobb look so old. He's only 37 in the 1924 photo but he looks like he's 55 years old.
I, too, have noticed how fast he aged. In the photo I am showing he is only 28 in 1915. He still looks like a kid player. But only 9 years later, his middle girth is widening, his hair is thinning, and his face has jowls. By 1924, he looks more like a banker than a ball player.

When a person devotes oneself, body and soul, to perfect their skills in their profession, they take it very seriously, if the powers that govern their profession pull a bait and switch. And many veteran baseball players felt exactly that, starting in 1920.

They were powerless to stop the bait and switch, and were hurt, heart-broken, appalled and dismayed to stand by and watch their profession's caregivers and stewards change their sport to showcase an entirely different skill-set. They felt taken for granted, frustrated, enraged, discounted in their value.

It was as if one's employer decides to eliminate your job category. I suspect that all of that depression/frustration wore on Cobb more than most of his peer contemporaries. But Speaker also looked old before his time. That is my theory as to why Cobb looked so old in 1924. He took his baseball very seriously. At that moment, he thought he'd manage ML teams all his life. Little did he know.

It seems like a lot of the players from that era got really old (looking) fast. I also always think of Eddie Collins and Honus Wagner in that regard. Genetics, diet, healthcare were all major factors in that (or any) era. So many factors...when I go out in the sun for an extended period, I use some sunscreen/moisturizer. That just didn't happen back then...among many, many other things.

I found a new (better/larger) version of this great picture which I've posted here before. So I tweaked it a bit and here ya' have it. (BTW, that looks like Lou Gehrig in the batting cage.)

That picture is from opening day 1927. That was the start to a fairly decent year for the Babe and his team (hehe). The A's were actually the pick to take the flag that season.

Notice how old Eddie Collins looked also.

Great photo of Ty, The Babe, annd Eddie Collins! If that is Yankee Statium the uniforms for Ty Cobb and Eddie Collins must be the (according to Dressed to The Nines) visitor's ones that they show as being pink. Is it really true that the A's wore pink uniforms for a couple of years? If so, Ty Cobb in pink!!!!

Not sure if this is already in the thread, but it should be. July 5, 1924, Babe was recklessly chasing a fly ball that drifted into foul territory and he knocked himself out by running smack into a concrete abutment at Griffith Stadium. Trainer Doc Woods (in the Yankee cap) is trying to revive him.

Looks like Gehrig on the right kneeling down, no?

Lou didn't play regular till 1925, not much before that.
Looking at the mitt the player is holding. Looks like a mitt worn by a right handed thrower, looking at what appears to be the thumb at the very top and webbing underneath that. Looks more like a mitt worn by a fielder other then a first baseman's.

Babe Ruth - 1918 - (colorized)
This is a great photo that has been colorized by Larry Bodnovich, who (like me) is a faithful reader/contributor to the website, "UNIWATCH". He did a great series of these here: http://www.uniwatchblog.com/2009/04/12/true-colors-volume-i/. I suggest that everyone check it out. Anyways, here's his color version of The Babe: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3661/3432190053_278c1baed6_o.jpg. I added color to the dugout cement and took out a few small glitches...enjoy!

Bill Burgess

Wow! Larry Bodnovich's talent of colorization is eye-popping. He doesn't over-do it by using emphatic, bold colors but the more muted ones, which conveys the authenticity of the era. Such as this stunning effort of Rogers Hornsby.
Kudos to both of you guys for such exquisite, artistic finesse in the service of sports!

What was this NBC radio show that the Babe had?

From Wiki:

"Ruth made many forays into various popular media. He was heard often on radio in the 1930s and 1940s, both as a guest and on his own programs with various titles: The Adventures of Babe Ruth was a 15-minute Blue Network show heard three times a week from April 16 to July 13, 1934. Three years later, he was on CBS twice a week in Here's Babe Ruth which was broadcast from April 14 to July 9, 1937. That same year he portrayed himself in "Alibi Ike" on Lux Radio Theater. His Baseball Quiz was first heard Saturdays on NBC June 5 to July 10, 1943 and then later that year from August 28 to November 20 on NBC, followed by another NBC run from July 8 to October 21, 1944."
