Item # 566846
April 17, 1946
THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, April 17, 1946 This 52 page newspaper has one column headlines on page 34: "GIANTS' FAST START ROUTS PHILLIES, 8-4" "Ott and Lombardi Hit Homers for 4 Runs in First, Then 2 in Second Game" and more. (see) This was actually Mel Ott's last career home run.
Various other baseball reports with nice photo on page 35 showing President Harry Truman throwing out the ceremonial first pitch of the 1946 baseball season. As a curiosity, this was actually the first time a president threw the ball left handed.
Other news of the day. Light browning, otherwise in nice condition.
