Babe Ruth at Sing Sing

Recounts an exhibition game between the New York Yankees and the Sing Sing prison inmates.

This hour-long documentary weaves back and forth between the careers of Babe Ruth, the major sports figure of his day, and Sing Sing Warden Lewis E. Lawes, "America's Warden." The two figures meet in person when Lawes invites Babe Ruth and the New York Yankees to play an exhibition game against the Sing Sing inmates on September 5, 1929.
