Item # 685572
September 09, 1919
THE GLOBE, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Mass., Sept. 9, 1919
* Babe Ruth's very 1st home run record
* Boston Red Sox - MLB baseball
Page 8, under "Watching the Score Board" is a brief report which begins with: "Yesterday's hero, Babe Ruth. The Red Sox gardener made a new home record..." (see) A very significant sports report as this first record-breaker for Babe Ruth thrust him into national prominence in the sports world, where he would remain. And interesting that he accomplished this as a member of the Boston Red Sox in a game against the Yankees. This would be his last season with Boston as four months later he would be bought by the Yankees.
Complete with 20 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, irregular along the spine, generally good. Should be handled with care.
