The sport's section (page 25) has a six column headline: "Tobin's 3 Homers Set Major League Record for Pitchers" with subheads, photo and box scores. (see) First report coverage on Boston Braves pitcher Jim Tobin becoming the only pitcher in modern MLB history to hit 3 home runs in one game. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
