Remembering Tony Lazzeri's baseball career

Two old teammates were reunited and found themselves on the opposite side of the baseball fence in Brooklyn, June 19, 1938. Babe Ruth came back to the diamond wars as a coach for the Brooklyn Dodgers and with Tony Lazzeri, a coach for the Chicago Cubs, as their teams engaged in a doubleheader. The Dodgers won the first game 6-2. Ruth and Lazzeri were Yankee players once upon a time.
