Watch Babe Ruth Teach Kids How To Play Baseball In “Just Pals”

“Just Pals” is a rare and funny short movie of George Herman “Babe” Ruth teaching kids the game of Baseball. Ruth established many MLB batting (and some pitching) records, including career home runs (714), slugging percentage (.690), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164), some of which have been broken. He was one of the first five inductees into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936.

This short film is produced by Christy Walsh, who also was baseball’s first agent, helping Ruth to turn his baseball fame into money and roles and setting the stage for the agent caricature such as “Arlis$$, played by Robert Wuhl, Bob Sugar of Jerry Maguire fame (played by Jay Mohr) or Ari Gold from Entourage (played by Jeremy Piven).
