In Chicago, Ruth was resentful at the hostile crowds that met the Yankees' train and jeered them at the hotel. Convicted of two misdemeanors. One long-term survivor of the craze over Ruth may be the Baby Ruth candy bar. Pleaded guilty to misdemeanor careless driving, 40 hours of community service, day jail sentence stayed.
Although Ruth's attempt to steal second is often deemed a baserunning blunder, Creamer pointed out that the Yankees' chances of tying the game would have been greatly improved with a runner in scoring position.
Ruth took a 3—2 lead into the ninth, but lost the game 4—3 in 13 innings. Paul, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Maui. Pleaded guilty, suspended seven-day sentence, two days' probation.
