Babe Ruth Again - I Couldn't Resist This One

On this day in 1930 Babe Ruth had his first three-homer game in a regular season game.  He did this in his first three at-bats.  So what does he do in the ninth inning?  He steps up to bat right-handed.  After two strikes he goes back to batting lefty and strikes out.  Is that legal today?  I should look it up but I'm busy until tomorrow.

The Yankees ended up playing three doubleheaders in a four-day stretch.  Ruth hit eight homers in those six games - over four days.
