Gnoza Knows It | Local woman's father played baseball with Babe Ruth


I got a call and a visit from a nice lady named Barbara who remembered my story about Babe Ruth playing baseball in Lebanon.

Barbara showed me a team picture of the Lebanon team. Ruth is on the top row and she says her dad, Alec Cohen, played on the team as well, and is kneeling third from the left.

I don't know what day that picture was taken but I think it's safe to say that Babe was out carousing locally that night. I read one article that said he had a girlfriend in Myerstown.
