If anyone had doubts about casting John Goodman as legendary New York Yankees slugger Babe Ruth in The Babe (1992), they were quickly put to rest one memorable night during the production of the film. "We all went out, determined to actually live like Babe Ruth," Bruce Boxleitner, who played Jumpin' Joe Dugan, later recalled. "So a bunch of us went drinking and carousing in a bar right outside Wrigley Field. After a number of rounds, I looked down the bar and saw that John was taking on the entire bar—I mean everyone—in Indian leg wrestling, and winning. I knew then, yes, this is the one true man, the only actor to play Babe Ruth."
