In honor of the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska (home of The Village of Boys Town), here is a little baseball history. In 1927, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig visited The Village of Boys Town during their postseason “barnstorming” tour. The two met Father Flanagan, as well as the Boys Town Band and student body. The visit came just prior to Boys Town’s 10th anniversary.
My grandfather played an exhibition game with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig during that visit. I think of Grandpa whenever I see this picture.
