A Bit of Racine/ NFL Football History..........................

George "Babe" Ruetz was Founder/ Coach of Horlick-Racine Legion Football team.

Babe was also one of the founding members of the NFL and made the motion at an NFL meeting to allow the Packers to move from Club status to “incorporated” status so that they could obtain shareholders to continue as a team. He owned and coached the team until his death in 1927 at the age of 33.

George “Babe” Ruetz was grandfather to both of his son’s families. Those families consist of: George J. Ruetz family: Bill*, Dick*, Ginni*, Jim*, and Rosi*. (in age order) Howard P. Ruetz family: Kathy, Teresa, Janice, Joe*, Sharon*, Margie*, Marlene*, Susie*. (in age order)

* Oct 1, 1922 the Horlick-Racine Legion hosted the newly minted Chicago Bears at Horlick Field in NFL action. The Bears beat the Legion 6-0.

* It was the first game played in the newly named National Football League making Horlick Field the original NFL stadium..................................Racine Legion - Wikipedia
