October 12, 1916

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, California, Oct. 12, 1916 

* Boston Red Sox are champions
* 1916 World Series of baseball
* Babe Ruth on the team

The front page has a rather large headline announcing: "RED SOX ARE CHAMPIONS" with subhead: "Shore Hurls Great Game for Winners; Pfeffer Is Chased". This is a rare same-day account of the final game, an advantage a West Coast newspaper has.
Included on the front page is the "Box Score" as well as nice text and an inning-by-inning account of the game, carrying over to page 5.
Babe Ruth was a member of the Boston team, but being a pitcher he did not play in this game, participating only in game two when he pitched 13 shutout innings, winning the game 2-1. But he went 0 for 5 at the plate.
Additional reporting is on the sports page including a large photo of "Big Jeff" Pfeffer, and he facing page has more text and two more photos.
Complete in 14 pages and in uncommonly nice, clean condition.
