THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, August 16, 1916
* Babe Ruth vs. Walter Johnson pitching duel
* Early coverage for Ruth, before he was a Yankee
The sports section (page 10) has a brief yet very historic report under "American League" "Red Sox 1, Senators 0" with the text beginning: "'Babe' Ruth came out the victor in a 13 inning pithcing duel...". (see) This was Babe Ruth from early in his career when he was a pitcher for Boston, against fellow Hall of Famer Walter Johnson.
Complete in 14 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally good.
