Print edition. This book contains 250 anecdotes about sports, including this one: Some boys playing baseball in a park once saw Babe Ruth stopped at a red light, and they requested, "Come on, let us see you hit a few." Babe parked his car and spent 30 minutes hitting easy fly balls so the boys could catch them-and he hit a few that traveled a very long distance. Babe was generous with money, too. One day during spring training, rain resulted in the cancellation of a game, so he went to a racetrack, where he won $9,000. In Babe's day, players were not paid during spring training, so most of his teammates were broke. Babe went back to the clubhouse, threw the $9,000 on top of an equipment trunk, and said, "Well, boys, look what I found."
