Babe Ruth Swings His Bat and His Manhood (GIF)
It’s not too rare to read about wardrobe malfunctions in sports nowadays. Let’s face it, all that strenuous physical activity is strenuous on the athletes’ clothes, as well as the athletes’ body. So accidents are bound to happen. But how often do you get to see one featuring Babe Ruth?
Full disclosure, it’s a little difficult to tell exactly what’s happening in this footage of Babe Ruth putting everything he’s got into a swing, but I’m pretty sure we’re seeing parts of Babe Ruth that people in Ruth’s day would have been hesitant to even speak about. If that’s something you’d be interested in seeing (and it’s okay, there’s no shame in it), I’ve got some good news for you.
Deadspin reader Tom spied the footage and was kind enough to create an animated GIF of the momentous occasion, which you can see for yourself below. It’s a good thing they didn’t have GIFs back when this footage was taken, because it probably would have sent the American people into widespread panic. Only now are we ready for the truth.
