Babe Ruth is suspended...



Item # 633282

June 21, 1922

ALLENTOWN CHRONICLE AND NEWS, Pennsylvania, June 21, 1922 

* Babe Ruth suspended
* Arguing with umpire (cursing)
* Ban Johnson


A front page one column head notes: "BABE AGAIN "IN WRONG" and: " 'Vacation' Is Stretched From Three to Five Days as Result of Argument". This was the result of Babe Ruth being suspended for arguing with umpire. Ban Johnson warns Ruth to behave or be suspended for the entire summer. Another article relating to Ruth inside.
Eighteen pages, some chipping at the right margin does not affect the noted article, otherwise good.
