Ruth picks a bat

Babe Ruth picks out a piece of lumber during a game at Comiskey Park in September 1934. Once asked the secret of his hitting, Ruth said, ''All I can tell 'em is I pick a good (pitch) and sock it. I get back to the dugout and they ask me what it was I hit, and I tell 'em I don't know except it looked good.''Tribune archive photo
