Kelly, had first approached the Tribune's publisher for a major sport event. The game was intended to be a one-time event to boost morale during the Great Depression. 45,000, net gate receipts) from the game went to a charity for disabled and needy major league players. Babe Ruth highlighted the game by hitting a two-run home run to right field in the bottom of the third inning and catching a fly ball up against the scoreboard in right-center field in the top of the eighth inning.
