The sport's section (page 18) has a two column heading: "Phils Crush Braves by 11-6, 9-3" with subheads and box scores. In the first game of this double-header, Babe Ruth struck out in the first inning, then hurt his knee taking him out of the game. This was actually his last time on the field of play as a baseball player.
Complete in 30 pages, this is the rag edition printed on high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. Very nice condition.
