George H.W. Bush has had something of a recent resurgence in the news after the sobering death of his wife Barbara. His heartfelt tribute to his late wife, who worked diligently to encourage literacy across the nation, gained popular attention during her funeral this weekend.

And on Monday, it was reported that George H.W. Bush was rushed to the hospital on Sunday after an infection spread to his blood. He was admitted to the intensive care unit and is reportedly “responding to treatments and appears to be recovering.” (RELATED:GEORGE W. BUSH POSTS TOUCHING TRIBUTE TO BARBARA BUSH [PHOTOS])
It seems like a lot of people in the US are pretty hungry for good news about H.W., so when a photograph of the 41st president surfaced on Twitter on Monday evening, it quickly went viral.
Presidential historian and author of the upcoming book, “Presidents Of War,” Michael Beschloss shared a photo of George H.W. Bush meeting Babe Ruth 70 years ago.
“George H.W. Bush, Yale baseball captain, with Babe Ruth, 70 years ago this June,” he captioned the photo.
