"The great quiz arena and and so either of you can guess at this and we'll try and just get through it quickly. I found some just weird facts about babe ruth after a quick Google search so number one. What was babe? Ruth's real name. George yes it. Didn't they say that in the movie. The movie George. Herman Ruth that is correct. One point that's worth five thousand dollars can relate but it's coming out of the National Science But it will irene so email. Bammer Emily we'll set it up. Did Babe Ruth Hitch only when he was playing in a conference where he had to bow. This sounds like you know a lot about base. Go now okay. I did not think he pitched because from the little that I know it seems like most pitchers don't hit well and he was known for home runs But he was a great pitcher pitcher. He was one of the best left handed pitchers of all time apparently and he pitched a fourteen inning complete game and who was the most innings ever thrown by a single pitcher in a postseason game. I think things are a little while back in the early days of baseball while everyone saying. Yeah Yeah Yeah. He switched a few times. Yeah positions and it seemed like the wild west out there. There was all kinds of there. Were only about five people five baseball players. They time they were climbing into the stands beating people up so they were doing exactly what the kids were doing. Basically we're playing all the things they're all switching around it was crazy The Candy Bar Baby Ruth is that named after him. No I mean what else would it be named after so I'm GonNa say yes Okay it depends who you ask because apparently the candy Bar was introduced in nineteen twenty one. Okay this was at the height of Babe Ruth Popularity. He was like just breaking home. Run records and stuff enough but the Curtiss Candy Company officially claims that it was named after Ruth Cleveland. The late daughter of former president. GROVER CLEVELAND. Now Ruth Cleveland died of of Diphtheria in one thousand nine zero four that was seventeen years prior at the age of twelve. So it's pretty clear that the story was just a legal ploy to get them out of in having to pay Babe. Ruth capitalized on the premature death of a child to not have to. That is exactly correct. Do you think a a decided that after people kept asking them and then we got to find a person named be. I mean may post talk right. They were like Oh. I don't know if we'RE GONNA get in trouble for this. Yes let's try it and then it started selling a bunch and they're like what we're totally going to sue you and they're like no no actually this unfortunate girl anyways. It's super sad and weird and I can't I couldn't do that was true and also I wanNA promote my new sneakers. I want everyone to buy. That are called. Lebron James Chart named after childhood dog I had who died of dysentery. Okay on July Fifth Nineteen Twenty Four. A Babe Ruth was running after a ball in foul territory. What happened next have have ninety? The ball hit a bird. I love that. Beirut knocked himself unconscious by running headfirst into a concrete wall he was out for about five minutes. It's but then got up. Played the rest of the game. He went three for three do doubles and then played another game. They had a nightcap had a double header so I thought that was kind of fun and and then to go to the hospital. I don't think they can. They believed in concussions back. Then you would not recommend that they continue playing no as a doctor. Yeah I to be clear. I'm not a medical doctor but I still just would not recommend that. Okay I trust you sound good for your brain. NO PROBABLY NOT ALTHOUGH I. I don't know how smart he was in the first place. What was the bellyache? Heard Round the world. Have you guys heard of lights alley ache. The belly ache heard round the world. Nobody's no I have no idea sounds like way too much chewing tobacco okay. Good that was good. I guess I'm just GonNa Guess yes that he was going to say that he burger allowed but then that would have been like the Burr Brown. Yes Oh yeah bellyache is it sounds. Yeah and I don't know how bellyache is heard. I guess there's IT sounds damn yeah. It's very weird. Okay so ruth missed the first forty one games of the nineteen twenty five season because of a quote bellyache. But it was widely rumored to be an S. T. D.. Because he had many many affairs that is wrong. A really disgusting. Wow Yeah explanation belly ache. I was hoping being to find just so you guys know cool. Interesting heroic facts about Babe Ruth Gonorrhea. Yeah he was it. Because I don't know I'll get back to you on that email. You he was married. I think several times he was married. It was so he has babe ruth kids he has Babe Ruth Kids I and I read and I don't know which one but I know. One of the kids found out later in life that her mom was not the woman she thought she was. She was like different like she found owned out that Babe Ruth had her with a different woman and then had to be like. Oh oops. That's my mom now so anyways but like you said baseball in the old days it was wild. Is that bad for Psychology yes yeah I was GONNA ask about that because our main character has a stepfather. Yeah and so I wanted to hear your thoughts on that trail. Uh I mean I think that it was if you have does. LEARY's your Stepdad. I guess I can imagine it'd be a little awkward at first but I think that they. I think they actually did a nice job with the parenting parenting in some ways One I think that without saying it explicitly say they did a nice job of describing the impact of having a parent die I think that you can save died. They just got divorced now. He died when he was young. So that was part of implied that was part of why he was a little bit. Ah Gotcha didn't know as much about baseball and also I think. I think that they did a nice job suggesting that. That was part of why he felt a little bit. Clingy to home You know he was a little bit afraid of leaving his house. He was a little bit nervous about going out and exploring the world road. Work up the courage to go and I think that that was a reasonable kind of Of conclude that you might draw from what a kid's experience would be of having a parent diet a young age that that's a a traumatic event And I think that they did a nice job of showing some trepidation with trying to form a relationship with a stepparent especially when you're already kind of grown up kid but you're still a kid so I thought that was a reasonably really good portrayal of it. Even though I wouldn't say that step dad had a huge role. It was more the idea of him then. His actual presence. Yeah I thought Dennis leary came across his Wonderful Stepdad eventually. Eventually the beginning. I was like Oh this guy's an asshole busy. Then he goes out of town now goes out of town. Come on what's going on there Dennis. I assume his name's Denison the movie I don't know if that's true I also wanted to ask. Since you've studied. Kids is that what bothers me a lot of time going out. I don't know if there's bothers you Irene. Ever but like there's so many kids now that are watching stuff or playing games on ipads or whatnot. Do you think that that's an issue or affecting kids in a bad way. They're watching the San Law too many times. That's that's what they're doing the SANDLOT EP. You know. I think that there's a good question. There have been concerns about media consumption and children since media I existed as you can read reports of people having concerns about the printing press and how that's going to corrupt the minds of the youth and then the same about radio and then the same was written about television so I don't think this is actually as new you phenomenon as we as we think it is The evidence is kind of mix because it's really hard to study To determine what is the effect of say watching a ton of stuff on your phone or on your computer versus the people who choose to do that are they different in some way from people who do not read. That's always a hard thing to separate out. I in in of itself. I mean there's evidence that you should not probably be consuming vast amounts of of media as a very young child just because it's so important to be getting face to face interactions and doing other things. But Ed an older age if it's done responsibly. And with a an adult or apparent of some kind sir supporting you and helping you make sense of the information that you're processing it can doesn't have to be a negative thing..

There's no reason why you couldn't get it done. Now that said, if there's things to fight about and children's issues and real estate, and maintenance, and all of those issues, and you need to go to court to have the judge decide it, then it could take over your because of all the other cases that have been filed before I've just briefly.

"So I gave one of my law clerks the assignment. Find out what happened to the home run that he called the shadow and she got contemporary contemporaneous newspaper accounts. They made it perfectly clear. It went right out in centerfield. So what was your husband's experience like with John Paul Stevens? Oh, he had a great experience. I mean, he's an absolutely lovely, man. The justice. I mean, and I think working for him was a privilege of a lifetime. I dare ask. What year he was their seventy nine eighty. Here's a photograph of Babe Ruth with Warren Harding, and at the at one of the ballpark's and in one thousand nine hundred twenty three how political was Baber. He wasn't political at all unless he was pushed to be. In fact, his second wife Claire sought after the debacle of refusing to pose with Herbert Hoover that it was bad for him to have anything to do with politics. So he supported Al Smith because he was Catholic in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight he actually stumped for him and made speeches for him. But he didn't actually do anything political including vote until nine hundred forty four when his agent. Christy Walsh, who was an oddly visionary guy. Understood marketing, and he created a template for how to be famous in America. But he was also a teetotalling cheap Irishman and very right wing conservative. So he started this whole thing to try to defeat the Roosevelt in his last election and got Beirut's to go on a radio show with his own nephew. Christie's nephew, Richard. The Richard tells me the story about how favorites was so drunk that he lost his place in the script that it prepared for them and theirs was thirty seconds of dead air, which of course, is Richard said is a killer on radio. Let's go back to the cover of your book and tell us about the photograph of beverage. They're under the title. The big fella that was taken at the polo grounds. You can see from his face. He's quite young. And it was taken by a very famous photographer named nNcholas Murray. Who was not a sports photographer? I think this may be the only guy he ever photographed from sports though, he himself was an Olympic fencer. So what struck me about this? And I knew I wanted to use this from the get-go. There are other nNcholas Murray photographs of him that were taken indoors quite well, no one if I'm sitting there with photographic screen behind him in a VAT sort of is legs. The way baseball players do. But this one had never been used perhaps. Because people thought it was too overexposed. But what I saw on. It was two things the hugeness of him when you see the field. And was he cut down originally when you see the whole field. He's alone on the infield. And it's such a portrait of the loneliness that I think is inherent to him. But also the largeness of the guy. I mean, you look at these meetings hands, and you get a sense of just how Vicky was, but it was also how he was holding himself. It was as if he saw and he knew that this photographer was not somebody who is just looking to see the prettiness of the finish of his swing, but was really looking for the interior life of the guy and Babe Ruth is holding himself in like this. So very guarded defensive posture. And that really SP. Speaks to how much she did not want people to know about him Hyun day on C span radio with Jane Levy, author of the big fella. We got as far as your husband working for John Paul Stevens that we didn't go farther on your background. How long were you at the Washington Post? And what year did you start? I started in July nineteen nineteen seventy nine and I left when we had our first child in one thousand nine hundred eighty five and then went back and then left again after our second child arrived in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and what did you write? I was first in the sports department, and I did Olympic stuff. I did tennis stuff. I covered the Orioles. And I did a lot of features in the future gal. And then I switched in the style section in order not to be traveling so much last year. I was in the sports department fulltime, I was away two hundred eighty five days. And that's you know, that was typical days when newspapers could afford to send people everywhere, which they can't now what was your family like what your parents do. My father was an entertainment lawyer known as Martha sport in New York City, and you know, very very very proud of having been the water boy for the New York football giants. My mom. Stayed home. And she was incredibly smart, incredibly talented, and she'd been born in the next generation, she would have either been an English teacher and English professor or she might have owned a restaurant, then a Baker. I'd I don't know. She was Norma's numbers of talents and didn't feel fulfilled brilliant, any of them. There is a museum in Baltimore, which I visited after reading your book wanting to see what what they had closed. There's a picture on the screen located close to Camden Yards. The Baltimore Orioles. Baseball stadium. How valuable is this? Well, it's it's it's a funny thing they have struggled financially as many museums. Do those row houses where he was born with one of them was the residence of his maternal grandparents, and that's where he was born in the middle of the blizzard of nineteen eighteen ninety five when the entire inner harbor though, it wouldn't have known as that then had frozen over. It's a wonderful locus in connects to the ballpark. And of course, as people no one of his father's many saloons was actually located in. What is now centerfield of Camden Yards? There is a famous photograph of his father and babe is standing behind the bar where is that bar, and why were the two of them working together? So that's after the Red Sox won the World Series in one thousand nine hundred fifteen boy, am I right about that played in the World Series in nineteen fifteen and he used his World Series money, which is three thousand changes a fair chunk of change in nineteen fifteen to by his father, who's the gentleman all the way far right in the in the frame. This mar with that they called Ruth's cafe if you hone in on the photograph enough what you can't hear you. See there's actually a calendar made with a woman sitting on a outfield fence advertising place. This is actually right up opposite the Bromo seltzer building which you see at the tower at what you see from the stanza Camden Yards. It's still there. The building is still there. It's now a men's club called the goddess why would there even be a museum? I don't mean like naive about the museum to Belarus in Baltimore. What would be when did you have any idea when it started? It started. I should have read that I should've reread the book it started in the eighties. The building had fallen into complete disrepair. The neighborhood had been overrun with drug addicts and was falling apart and the city and some boosters decided that. Since Babe Ruth was perhaps the most famous athlete. Johnny United's fans. Shouldn't get mad at me. To come out of Baltimore that they deserve to preserve this as a as a landmark and then as a way to commemorate his career, he of course, wants his father died outside that far in August nineteen eighteen it never really came back to Baltimore. It did not hold good memories for him. As I said, his childhood was horrible. The headlines in the. Baltimore Sun in which is parents divorce was noted gave as the grounds adultery and drunkenness. George Ruth senior was given custody of the three remaining child children from that marriage. One of them was not yet a year old that that little boy's name was William and he would die of starvation in August of nineteen o six. So there are only two kids who survived at marriage and Babe Ruth is seven when he's I sent there that was in four years earlier than than a divorce, but the family was totally tumultuous. He had seen by nineteen o six four of his siblings die in infancy. And now that there's only two kids left and self in his sister Mamie who is six years younger. They still don't want him. And you know, imagine how that must have felt you know. And so the legend grew up. He was this bad kid running amok on water from a Baltimore. He never. He never lived on the waterfront in Baltimore. And so I think he internalized I mean, it's you don't want to too much psychobabble. But I think he internalized the idea that he must be bad because why else would neither of his parents have wanted him. You write a lot in your book about his other ways of making money. And I'm going to hold up one or the other ways of making money. This is a baby Ruth candy bar and for years, I've interviewed people hear about Grover Cleveland who said this was named after his daughter, Bruce, baby Ruth, Cleveland ripe. But the impression I get from your book is that this was a very important part of his financial life, meaning Babe Ruth life. Well, it was important in Cincinnati never earned a dime or a nickel. I should say off of it. Because that was the most popular came to be the most popular nickel nut bar cost me two dollars. Just in case you want to know. Well, that's because it's now on by Italians, and I have to be important. So what happened with the baby Ruth bar is this. There was a cargo unbeknownst to me is the candy capital of the United States and back in the early twenties. There was a guy named Otto Schnur during those genius went to the university of Chicago it opened a little candy company in not far from Wrigley field. As a matter of fact, and he needed a signature. Product. And he didn't have when he was making a lot of things he would be would make them butter fingers. But he gets the idea while sitting in the Clinton stands at Wrigley field to change the name of the candy. Kate candy, Kate Kate to baby Ruth, and he does this in one thousand nine hundred ninety and he markets. Well, Babe Ruth was ignored. They didn't actually register with a. With the government for years later. But by that time insuring and the Curtiss candy company had had invested hot thousands and thousands of dollars into making in promoting this. So when Babe Ruth and his representatives finally realize that somebody else is getting very rich off something called the baby Ruth, they decide to open their own company and make a different candy bar. Well, it can't go anywhere without without getting sanctioned. So they sue in. I'm sorry. Burnt out here. They soon for. Trespass of of. Patent? Thank you. Thank you, copyrights. Thank you. They tried to sue, and basically they lose because the other bar has been in existence and has been promoted, and the the judge basically says, you know, are bar, you're Babe Ruth home. Run candy bar is actually infringing upon the rights of the baby Ruth part, which is hilarious Curtis actually maintained for years. They still sort of maintain that that the baby Ruth was named for baby Ruth Cleveland who had died, I believe in one thousand nine hundred four it's implausible, but because there was no right of publicity. And there were no raw at that point that would protect the rights of someone famous to own their name and their likeness. There was no other way that they could sue so his candy bar failed. And this went on to make gazillion dollars. And he got none of it. There's a lot in the book. We're not even coming close. And I'm jumping around try to get some of your stories out. I'm face to forty six the only documented birth for George Ruth. And Helen Woodford in Massachusetts records was a stillbirth on November nineteen thousand nine hundred sixteen you right, which was just one month before newspapers reported that she had been thrown from a car while joy riding with her husband and Boston. What's the background on? Well, it was an unhappy marriage, and it ended terribly what I what the the perspective. I think you have to have on. It is when Babe Ruth gets out of Saint Mary's at age nineteen. All these things of life changing events happen. So fast goes to the Orioles. He goes to the Red Sox, and he meets a young waitress in Boston named Helen Woodford for you say was sixteen. She was sixteen and he proposes they get they get married. He's nineteen she sixteen. They needed permission to get married, which they which they got and that this marriage would fail. Is hardly surprising. He'd seen. None of the world. He had been in this institution where there to say. The least there were no girls. But what touches me about it? Brian is that the legend of Babe Ruth is that he was this guy but set by appetites, and that he filled his life with women and beer and food. Yes, he did plenty of that. But his first instinct was to try to give himself the family and the whole life that he had never had as a child, and I think that's incredibly moving. He outgrew. Helen, he was on the road. Did discover that there were lots of women who are interested in being with the big slugger. He did drink a whole lot of beer and put on a whole lot of weight. And by the time Helen died in a very tragic house fire in January in nine hundred twenty nine they had been separated legally for five four years. They had signed a separation agreement in August on August fourth nineteen. Nineteen twenty five which was kept quiet, and there would have been nothing written about it except the captain Joe Patterson, the founder and publisher of the new York Daily News, America's first tabloid decided to change the rules on day Ruth Ruth was accustomed to being protected and having all his secrets kept secret by the reporters who covered him and suddenly in August twenty five when babe is suspended by Miller. Huggins manager, the AKIs, and he's fine five thousand dollars heard of amount of money because he's showing up late one too many times because he hasn't gone to bed because he hasn't because he's out carousing. Huggins finally lays down the law and Patterson takes the opportunity to publish the picture of his mistress on the front page of the new York Daily News, and because of the revolution in technology that was underway and in mass. Media the Tribune and the.

How about the butterfinger where did the butterfinger get its name, according to legend the Curtis company? Curtiss candy company of Chicago decided to run a contest to name their new candy bar.

"She he became inspired to become an entrepreneur and start his own candy company as well. So he started making different types of chocolate and peanut candies named after members of his family. And then he heard from a supplier that it was. There was a shortage of keynote flavored peanut butter type candy that was covered in chocolate people were demanding it and so Harry Reid's decided to start making peanut butter Cup. And the reason why reese's peanut butter cups became so popular is because they have this unique taste, you know, you might try one from a competitor. It doesn't quite have the same taste, and the reason for this is actually caused by an accident when Harry Reid started manufacturing, the peanut butter cups. He was using old equipment and disa- Quinton. It was slightly burning the peanuts. When. It was roasting them. And here he didn't even realize that this was happening until the peanut butter cups. Started becoming so popular. He bought new equipment and expanded operation when he did that he discovered that the peanut butter cups had lost that magical taste, and so he had to find a way to reproduce it with a modern the Sheena Reyes. So that it kept that special flavor. What about Snickers bars where did they come from, HUD? They get their name. It's one of my favorites. So I I'd like to hear that one some people might know this, but a little bit of trivia about the Snickers bar is that it was named after the Mars family's favorite horse knickers and here in America. We have known the Snickers bar back from when it was introduced in nineteen thirty but overseas in the United Kingdom for the longest time up until the nineteen nineties. It was called the marathon bar, and there's no official reason. Zain to give given to explain this. But the rumor is that the Mars company didn't like the idea that Snickers rhymed with the word knickers the name over there for women's underwear. Well, what an odd thing in our these candies like this knickers bar and the Tuzi role. Are they basically the same as they've always been or have? They changed. Andy has more or less. Stay the same in flavor over the years over the decades until really recent times, we've seen a lot more changes in the recipes of candy bars. A lot of that has to do with the economics of the cost of cocoa. But one interesting story when it comes to a change the recipe is with the butterfinger bar, which is another top Halloween candy. The butterfinger bar was originally made by the Curtiss candy company back in nineteen twenty three and they were looking for a follow up to their hugely popular baby Ruth bar. And so they came out with the butterfinger. It was a huge hit and Curtis candy thrived for many decades. But after a while they sold the company, and then they sold it again. And they sold it a third time to Nestle. In nineteen eighty nine. And during the transfer of ownership, apparently as the story goes the recipe was lost. And so nasty had to frantically look to recreate the recipe. So I can't say as a person eating better fingers back then that I noticed..
