THE WORLD, New York City, June 21, 1921
* Babe Ruth home run
* New York Yankees
This 24 page newspaper has a two column headline on page 10: "Ruth's 24th Homer Wins in Tenth Inning" with subhead and box score. (see)
Tells of Babe Ruth's 127th career home run which moved him into 2nd place on the career list for homers and 11 dingers behind all-time leader, Roger Conner.
Nice to have this early Ruth home run achievement in a NYC paper.
Other news of the day. Usual browning with minor margin wear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
