On April 2, 1931, the New York Yankees were in Chattanooga, TN, for an exhibition game against the minor league Chattanooga Lookouts. In the first inning, a pitcher who had signed with the Lookouts only a week before, took the mound in relief. The legendary Babe Ruth was the next batter. He swung at and missed the first two pitches. The next pitch left him looking, and the mighty Babe had struck out. Following Ruth was the Iron Horse, Lou Gehrig. Three pitches, three swings, and Gehrig struck out as well.
