The real characters in the story, including the Babe himself, their words and actions are surmised and re-created based on various published sources, including The Courant's sports sections, Ruth's own syndicated column, which appeared regularly in The Hartford Times, and conversations with Linda Ruth Tosetti, his granddaughter.
