What a day! I just traveled back to 1932 to witness one of the most iconic moments in sports history: Babe Ruth's called shot during the World Series at Wrigley Field.
As a huge sports fan, I was beyond excited to see the great Bambino in action. And let me tell you, he did not disappoint. In the fourth game of the World Series against the Chicago Cubs, The Babe stepped up to the plate and pointed towards the center field bleachers. And you know what happened next? He blasted a home run right over those bleachers! It was amazing.
But here's the crazy part: I don't know how, but the second I got to 1932, I was recruited to be a popcorn vendor at the stadium.
But I was so excited to see Babe Ruth, I accidentally tripped and fell down the center field stands, holding dozens of bags of popcorn. And as I fell, I grabbed onto the nearest person, who happened to be an angry Cubs fan who got covered in it!
As I got up, I saw Babe Ruth pointing right at me with his bat from home plate. Next thing I knew, he hit the longest home run in this history of that stadium right over my head!
Did he call his shot? Or was he pointing at me? Who knows? But what a trip!
So if you're ever in need of a good laugh or some awkward inspiration, just think of me, Charlie Marley, the clumsy and inquisitive time-traveler who made a fool of himself in front of the great Babe Ruth.
