Lou Gehrig has a field day....

Item # 573128

June 13, 1928

THE WORLD, New York City, June 13, 1928 

* Lou Gehrig has 2 HR & 2 Triples 
* New York Yankees - Babe Ruth 

This 30 page newspaper has a three column headline on page 11: "Yankees End Their 'Slump'" with subheads that include: "RUTH SWATS 23D, GEHRIG GETS PAIR IN 15 TO 7 VICTORY" and more.

Tells of Lou Gehrig collecting 14 total bases while hitting 2 home runs and 2 triples in one game. Great to have in this NYC title.

Also a Babe Ruth editorial on the same page.

Other news of the day throughout . Light browning with minor margin wear, otherwise in good condition.
