Did you know... Babe Ruth wore a cabbage leaf under his cap to keep him cool? He changed it every 2 innings!

He had to change it every 2 innings. Otherwise it would turn into sauerkraut.

If it could keep your head cool, what about other locations on the body? maybe a foot wrap for example. I'd say it's a cool idea to think about

I wonder if that was something he did from the start of his career to the end or if it was a passing trend?

I didn't know that, but I didn't even know there was someone called Babe Ruth, so... I've learnt a lot with just one sentence!
