"Rube Was Stretched Out in the bottom of the Boat ... With an Empty Bottle of Whiskey"

A light hitting outfielder, Davey Jones played in 15 seasons between 1901 and 1918 mostly for the Detroit Tigers. In this clip he speaks about the great pitchers of his era and reminisces a classic Rube Waddell story that perhaps portrays more about the era then Rube himself.

The second clip is short one on Babe Ruth, told by Hans Lobert. The money quote, "He pulled a knife and was going to widdle a couple of us with it".
