This black-and-white original news service photo captures Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig greeting Verne Beatrice Mitchell. The day before, Mitchell had struck out both Ruth and Gehrig in a game they played in Chattanooga. Quite the feat for a seventeen-year-old girl! The 5-1/2" x 7-1/4" photo exhibits some mild crazing and a chip near Ruth's left shoulder. The back reveals an International News Photos, Inc. stamping and a Central Press Association stamping. A detached paper caption piece dates the photo to April 3, 1931. Overall EX/MT in appearance.
