Caption/Description

Babe Ruth leans on a bat with cap in hand, June 13, while thousands cheer him in Yankee Stadium, New York. Ruth wears his famed NO.3 uniform for the last time, never again to be worn by any Yankee player, but to be retired permanently in Baseball's Hall of Fame. The ceremony was in observance of the 25th Anniversary of the opening of Yankee Stadium.
