Babe Ruth as Santa Claus - 1947 Newsreel

Holiday classic.

Babe Ruth wasn't just a talented pitcher and batter who slugged 714 home runs. He was also a pretty remarkable Santa Claus. The Sultan of Swat dressed up as Chris Kringle in 1947, and the footage is must-see TV.

Decades after his playing days, Babe's legacy lives on.
