A commission for the National Pastime Museum, this painting was created with gouache on paper and catalogs what may have been the longest home run of all time - or not. In the fall of 1929, Babe Ruth and the rest of the Yankees headed up to Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, New York to play the Sing Sing Prison Black Sheep - the prison's ballclub made up of convicts. During the game, Ruth launched a mammoth dinger. Some of the press called it the longest home run ever hit, but we'll never really know. It's certainly part of Babe Ruth's lore.
