Watch a young Matt Williams do the best Babe Ruth impression you've ever seen

Matt Williams, mostly a stern-faced presence in the Nationals dugout these days, was "renowned throughout the National League as a master of baseball impersonations" during his playing career.

The third baseman's impressions of Reggie Jackson and Will Clark were popular, but none was more impressive than his version of Babe Ruth -- complete with waddling home run trot, hat-tip to the fans, and a substantial pillow-aided paunch. The routine was captured on June 23, 1991 by a local camera crew at Candlestick Park. Check it above, along with the real thing for comparison purposes.
