"Hey Goofy! Lookit the Fish"
During 1925 Ruth's one poor year in baseball though
he batted .290 and hit 25 homers he became the most
oelebrated hospital ase of nil time. He came up with
influenza which limited him to loss than 109 games for
the only time during his peak years. Hut it was his
recurrent "stomach aches that really made him a
famous hospital case. Practically every kid in the coun
try was rooting for his return to action.
He came back at 32 the following year with 47 homers
and a .-872 batting average and followed this with his
record 60 homers in 1927 and 54 in 1928.
Five weeks before the 1930 .season opened he signed
a two-year contract for $80,000-a-year. He rented two
homes in St. Petersburg, one fur himself and one for
Lefty Gomez, the quick-witted Yankee pitcher whose
company Ruth enjoyed.
