Babe Ruth Hits His 50th...



Item # 220469

September 24, 1920

LEOMINSTER DAILY ENTERPRISE, Massachusetts, Sept. 24, 1920.
 
* Babe Ruth hits 50th Home Run

A rather small report in the bottom half of the front page has a one column head: " 'BABE' MAKES 50TH HOME RUN" with the text reading: " 'Babe' Ruth made his 50th home run of the season in the first inning of today's game with Washington: at the Polo grounds. This is the mark that Ruth declared he would reach when he started out this spring with the New York Americans."

Complete in 10 pgs., margin chipping in the lower right side, irregular at the spine, some margin tears. Somewhat pulpish and should be handled with care.
