I think Babe Ruth signing with Connie Savage to barnstorm at the end of the 1921 season is how the Babe got suspended in 1922.

Each year MLB prohibited the two World Series teams from barnstorming afterwards. The Yanks played the 1921 Series, lost to the Giants, and then Babe went barnstorming with Savage. Getting Babe Ruth suspended… Do you that that could have ended Savage’s career as a baseball promoter? Is that why he was back tending bar in 1933?
