CAPTION TEXT ON PRINT:

Babe Ruth, 1926
with Frank Gilhooley, Sr. and Jr.

Standing at an exhibition game in Lima, OH after the baseball season — the year before Ruth hit his record 60 home runs — The Babe takes a moment with Frank Sr. The two had been roommates while playing with the Boston Red Sox in 1919. The younger Mr. Gilhooley, 2-years-old here, would become a legendary Toledo sportscaster. In 1928, when Ruth returned to Toledo to lift spirits at a children’s hospital, The Blade gave the baseball icon almost an entire full inside page, which was never done.  BLADE ARCHIVE PHOTOS
