Item # 561723
July 17, 1914
THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, Boston, July 17, 1914
* Babe Ruth - Boston Red Sox
* Second MLB baseball game played
Page 16 has a box score of the baseball game between Detroit and Boston, headed: "Detroit Beats Red Sox" and which includes the battery of Boston as: "Ruth, Johnson, Coumbe and Carrigan". (see photo) This was just the second professional baseball game in which Babe Ruth played, and great to have this report--albeit rather inconspicuous--in a Boston newspaper.
The complete 18 page newspaper in great condition.
