On This Date...

On this date in 1926, Babe Ruth pulled a stunt at Mitchell Field in New York, catching a baseball that was dropped from an airplane traveling at 250 feet.

That was probably super awesome. Someone should recreate that moment. Kenny Rogers perhaps?

Or not... he's just the only recent gold-glove pitcher besides Greg Maddux and Mike Mussina I can think of at the moment... and neither of them are as fat as The Gambler.
