This is a man who needs no introduction. Babe Ruth was the biggest celebrity in America during the 1920s. On December 7th, 1921, he was visiting Washington to stop by and say hello to President Harding.
The mention of it in the Post the next day was excellent.
Babe Ruth, baseball’s greatest hitter, was introduced to the President, who greeted him cordially, and when Babe came out, he was wearing a smile broader than any that ever radiated over his face after he had knocked out one of his famous home-runs.
I guess even the Babe could be a little starstruck.
