Babe Ruth wore a cabbage leaf under his cap to keep him cool and changed it every two innings

Babe Ruth was up to all sorts of things throughout his years playing professional Baseball. In the early 1900s, uniforms were made of wool and therefore made players extremely hot and sweaty as they played. But Babe had an ingenious trick up his sleeve, or should we say underneath his hat. He would take cabbage leaves and spread them over ice in a cooler and then place them underneath his hat during the game to keep cool. Babe shared this single cabbage leaf trick with his teammates but for himself, he actually needed two leaves to keep cool thanks to his famously large head.
