October 16, 1923

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, Oct. 16, 1923  The banner headline announces: "YANKS WIN WORLD'S SERIES", which was the very first of their World Series championships, defeating the N.Y. Giants 6 to 4. The Yankees would go on to win another 26 World Series championships, a record for any single franchise.
Front page column heads note: "Eight Inning Rally Smashes Giants, 6 to 4" "Babe 'Caseys' in Big Winning Attack" with the text providing considerable detail.
Coverage continues on the sports page with: "Rally in Eight Inning Beats Giants: Yanks World Champs" as well as: "Frisch's Feats Nearly Save Giants, but Yanks' Crushing Power an't Be Denied". Not surprisingly there is much mention of Babe Ruth.
The back page is filled with photos, including 3 of the World Series, one showing Babe Ruth sliding into third base.
