NEW YORK TIMES, New York City, New York, August 3, 1931
* New York Yankees
* Start of longest non-shutout games
* Last shutout for 308 upcoming games
This 38 page newspaper has a two column headline: "Yankees Break Even" with subheads that include: "40,000 SEE YANKS DIVIDE IN BOSTON" "Ruth's Bat Helps Win First by 4-1, Then Moore Hurls 1-0 Shut-Out in Nightcap" and more with box scores. (see)
Tells of the New York Yankees being shutout by the Boston Red Sox in the second game of a double header. It will be another two years and a day, a major league record spanning three hundred and eight games, before the Bronx Bombers are blanked again.
Great to have in the famous NYC title.
Other news of the day throughout. Light browning with minor spine wear, otherwise in good condition.
