Default Babe Ruth and Teammates Busted Breaking Prohibition

I thought everyone would enjoy this 1922 photo of the Babe, Whitey Witt, Bob Muesel, and Lefty O'Doul famously getting busted for drinking during
Prohibition. I identified the people that I could - if you recognize anyone else in the photo I would love to know who they are.

I am also including a link to a Type III of this photo that sold at Goldin:

... and a few write ups of the incident.

Very interesting stuff Bryan thank you for sharing it. Det. Kelly had quite the knack for undercover work. Great reaction by the Huggins. It seems pedestrian compared to the antics of current pro's.
