August 11, 2016 @ 12:05 pm - 6:00 pm
The Baseball Heritage Museum will recognize the 87th anniversary of Babe Ruth’s 500th home run. Ruth hit more home runs at League Park, with 46, than any visiting player including his historic 500th home run on August 11, 1929.
Special guest Bill Long will be here between 4 – 6 p.m. and will talk about Ruth’s 436th home run hit out of League Park and onto Lexington Avenue on June 7, 1928 and its fascinating journey since then. The program will include videos about Ruth, discussions about Ruth in books and film, and a look at his memorable games at League Park.
