Al Capone wanted to buy the Chicago Cubs.

We are heading to the playoffs in baseball and my team, the CUBS are in it this year. I will share a picture of my uncle Al Capone with Babe Ruth drinking beer in Cuba. My uncle Al Capone was planning to buy the Chicago Cubs and make Babe Ruth the player/manager. The picture below was taken in Cuba in 1929. Al Capone is standing in the middle and Babe Ruth is on his left, your right.
Below is a picture of the baseball that Al Capone and Babe Ruth signed that night to seal the deal.
