The Babe's First Home Run


Author(s):
Abstract:
Most people remember George Herman \"Babe\" Ruth as the mighty home run hitter for the New York Yankees. Few, however, know that he hit his first professional home run in a spring training game in Fayetteville in 1914. In April, 1952, a North Carolina highway historical marker was erected there to commemorate the event.
