The sport's page (pg. 10) has a very small one column heading: "Ruth Hits Home Run" See image for brief text here. First report coverage on Babe Ruth's 1st home run of the 1927 baseball season. He would end the season with 60 and hold the home run record for many years until Roger Maris broke it in 1961. That year's Yankees team is considered by many as the best ever. Nice to have from the city where he started his MLB career.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 18 pages, irregular along the spine, other minor margin wear, generally nice.
