All respect to LeBron, but the bigger-than-life image of Babe Ruth looms over his sport like folklore. Join Cleveland Indians royalty for the opening of a new exhibit devoted to a Babe sacred relic.
A long-obscure secret treasure of Cleveland’s Hough neighborhood, League Park is the oldest surviving baseball structure in the world. Now the Baseball Heritage Museum, housed in remnants of that early stadium, marks the 90th anniversary of Ruth’s 436th home run, one that the Bambino hit at League Park.
Bob DiBiasio, Cleveland Indians Senior VP, will join a discussion of baseball buffs and memorabilia owners to talk about Ruth and the unveiling of an exhibit starring the actual heirloom home-run ball, autographed on that day by Babe Ruth — and later, by legendary Hank Aaron.
Admission is free but registration is required.
