Babe Ruth after the 'bellyache heard 'round the world'

In this recently discovered rare footage shot on June 1, 1925, Babe Ruth appears in his first Yankees game of the season after his "bellyache heard 'round the world." The footage captures Ruth practicing and standing in the dugout, where another famed Yankee can be seen in the background -- Lou Gehrig. The footage, from the University of South Carolina's Moving Image Research Collections, was identified by baseball researcher Tom Shieber.
