Babe Ruth Home Run Record In 1921...

Item # 577155

October 03, 1921

THE DAY, New London, Connecticut, October 3, 1921.

* Babe Ruth breaks home run record with 59th for the New York Yankees
* One short of his prediction at beginning of season

This 112 page newspaper has a small one column heading on page 9: "Ruth Going After 60 Mark In 1922," which is short report mentioning his 59th home run for the season the day before (see images).

Other news of the day. Usual browning with some margin wear and tear, mostly along the spine.
