Ruth was being ridden by the Cubs the entire series and he would ride them right back. At the time, I did think Babe was pointing to the bleachers, but (shortstop) Frank Crosetti told me no, he put up one finger to indicate he had another strike coming. Babe never denied that he was pointing to the stands. Still it was quite extraordinary to see him point, then hit the very next pitch out of the ballpark. With my salary and a half-share in the World Series, it amounted to about $10,000. That was the depths of the Depression. I thought I was the richest man in the world and I think I damn near was.
