Lou Gehrig Was Named Yankee Captain on This Day in 1935. Was The Babe Ever Captain?

Lou Gehrig became the fifth Yankee captain on this day in 1935.  That is nice, but I read that Babe Ruth was captain for all of six days.  What is that story?



I found a site which listed the history of Yankee captains (http://www.cheatsheet.com/sports/derek-jeter-and-the-history-of-yankees-captains.html/?a=viewall).  It explains how the Babe's behavior cost him being captain.  Not a surprise, but a nice site to read.
