"we were talkin today about it being juneteeth and ways to support black businesses so we thought this was the business that we wanted to make sure we supported today."

The girls have been so successful they bought phones, but say they aren't for business&.

"play games an watch youtube.

Oh you're not like making business calls or anything-i do.

After weeks of uncertainty and negotiations, it looks like major league teams may actually play ball.

If it really happens, one of baseball's biggest fans may have just played a role.

Cbs's steve hartman is... "o the road."

For the boys of summer, this has been one, dark winter.

Little leagues cancelled - pro baseball in limbo& nat jake "like th yankees" 10-year-old jake curzon of south elgin, illinois says kids in his neighborhood are devastated.

Bite jake "we wer just sad to hear that covid 19 stopped baseball.

Steve: what would you give to have baseball back?

Jake: we would give anything."

Std-up / and that's why not long ago, jake reached out to the only person he knew who could both understand the depth of his sorrow - and might be in a position to help.

He poured his heart out in a letter and addressed it to mr. babe ruth.

Nat newsreel footage never mind the yankee great died 72 years ago - jake was determined to get a message through to him.

And he thought the best way to do that was to send the letter here - to the gate of heaven cemetery in hawthorne, new york where ruth is buried.

And sure enough, the staff conveyed the message - posting it right on his marker so the babe couldn't miss it.

Jake wrote, " thought you would be interested in knowing this is the year 2020 and we are in a world pandemic.

They cancelled baseball!

We all have keeped praying for this to end."

Bite jake "steve was your thinking that if he knew that this was affecting baseball, he might step in and help?

Jake: yea, because it's the sport he loves and he plays.

Steve: what did you want him to do?

Jake: since he's like a guardian angel now, i wanted him to somehow make this pandemic stop.

Steve: do you think he got your message?

Jake: i think so."

Now every time he sees someone released from the hospital - or hears good news about a vaccine - he knows the babe is doing everything he can to bring back baseball and make the world as it was.

So our sincere thanks to this imaginative little- leaguer - who found a major league way to help.

Bite jake "steve: d you think you could ask him to help the tigers win a world series?

Because i've been rooting for that and i haven't had much luck.

Or do you think that's a bridge too far?

Jake: i don't think he'll answer ."

I guess i'll try joe dimaggio.
