** FILE ** Retired Yankees slugger Babe Ruth warms up with three bats before stepping to the plate at New York’s Yankee Stadium, in an August 21, 1942 photo. He was 40, with a pot belly that couldn’t be supported by his spindly legs and a growing realization his career was over. His batting average hovered nearly 200 points below his career mark, and his pitchers were unhappy with his inability to run down even the easiest of fly balls. (AP Photo/Tom Sande, file)
