Hats Newsbeat

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

14 minutes of sound footage from the April 1931 Yankees-Red Sox season opener (YouTube)

SEE!  The Sultan of Swat spit!  SEE! The Sultan of Spit swat!

SEE!  “Charlie” Ruffing get an RBI!  SEE!  Mayor Jimmy Walker steal a baseball!  SEE!  The #4 subway train stop for the national anthem!  And hats!  Hats!  Hats!

NOT SHOWN!  The two home runs in the game!  One from Babe Ruth (his first of 46 that season) and—that’s right, you guessed it—Tom Winsett (his first of 1).
