Babe Ruth Bat

(#1103) from Kentucky Life Program 1103 (2005)

A visit to the Louisville Slugger Museum to see a baseball bat used by Babe Ruth during the historic 1927 season, featuring notches he cut to represent some of the record 60 home runs he hit that year. Found in a closet by Cheryl Frazer while she was going through her late husband’s things, the bat is now valued at more than $100,000.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
