THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 25, 1925
* Babe Ruth - New York Yankees
* 1st ever player to hit 'ultimate home run'
The sport's section (page 16) has a one column heading: "RUTH'S HOMER WINS; CLEARS BAG IN 10TH" with subheads and box scores. (see) The 'Sultan of Swat" becomes the first modern player to blast an ultimate grand slam, a walk-off homer with the bases full which wins the game by one run. Great to have in this famous NYC title.
