Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth Batting Cage

Babe Ruth Central recently discovered this cool recording online of the Babe and Lou having a conversation and “taking shots” at each other to entertain and humor their fans. It was recorded after the 1927 season. There aren’t a lot audio recordings of Lou Gehrig out there which makes this clip pretty special. In addition, fans would enjoy their banter – a reflection of the good relationship they had at times. It also gives people a sense of the time period in which they lived and the type of content that people may have found funny or entertaining. Enjoy baseball friends!:

If you’re interested in hearing more of the Babe, we have a brief clip in our Kid’s audio/video section, where Babe is re did later in life when he was asked about the Called Shot.
