THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 14, 1921
* Babe Ruth's only start at Yankee pitcher
* New York Yankees - MLB baseball
* Best title to be had ?
The sport's section (page 11) has a one column heading: "RUTH'S RECORD HIT HELPS YANKS WIN" with subheads that include: "Babe Makes History With Drive Into Centre Field Bleachers at the Polo Grounds" "Slugger Also Gets Another Homer, Pitches Five Innings and Fans Ty Cobb" and more with box scores. First report coverage on the only time Babe Ruth was the starting pitcher for the New York Yankees. He also became the first player to hit a home run into the center field bleachers at the Polo Grounds during this game. Great to have in this famous New York City paper.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 30 pages, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
