New Babe Ruth Statue at Hanlan's Point
The Toronto Blue Jays play the New York Yankees tonight... a great match-up, but one with a little more significance on this particulary day.
According to legend, the 3-run homer, against our own Toronto Maple Leafs, was blasted right out into Lake Ontario, never to be recovered. Ruth was promptly brought over to the majors by the Boston Red Sox.
As I write this, everyone from Jays CEO, Paul Godfrey, to city councillors and Tom Stevens - Babe Ruth's Grandson - are at Hanlan's for the unveiling.
(Quick! Get on a ferry!)
