* Yankee Stadium showcases youngsters
* Babe Ruth photo with child player
The sport's section (page 8) has a two column photo showing Babe Ruth with a youngster and heading: "Passing the Tip Along" with text underneath. Reports that their was a baseball game for kids at Yankee Stadium prior to the Yankees & Tigers match-up. Miller Huggins and Ty Cobb were the coaches for this event. I tried finding something online regarding this event and came up with nothing. A nice curiosity on the legendary stadium and Babe Ruth.
Complete with all 14 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, generally good.
