Man in a Suit Approaches Dodgers at First Night Game, 1938

Look carefully at the man in the suit, who is approaching a couple of the Brooklyn Dodgers in this photo of the historic first night game ever played at Ebbets Field. Could it be Babe Ruth? He's certainly built like the Bambino. Plus, we know the Babe was at this game. He drew a large enough crowd that Larry MacPhail noticed and made him an offer of $15,000 a year to coach first base.

Ebbets Field, Brooklyn, June 21, 1938

Ebbets Field, Brooklyn, June 21, 1938

The Brooklyn Dodgers take the field in the second night game ever played in their beloved Ebbets Field. On the extreme right of this black and white image, we see the great Babe Ruth suited up as the Dodgers' first base coach. Ruth signed on three days earlier for $15,000 per year, anxious just to be back in the game and, he hoped, have a shot at managing the Dodgers the following season. Leo Durocher, long time "frenemy" from their Yankee days, ultimately took the helm of the Brooklyn team.

It's June 21, 1938, and in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, the Bums, the Brooklyn Dodgers are playing the Pittsburgh Pirates in the second ever night game in Ebbets Field. Babe Ruth attended the first night game on June 15, and the crowd loved him so much, that Larry MacPhail hired him as the first base coach. In this old picture, taken by a fan at the game, we see the Sultan of Swat, standing by the first base line wearing his new Dodger uniform.
