Babe's Batboy Remembers that First Home Run

Record #:
Fayetteville's Maurice Fleishman was the Baltimore Orioles' batboy when Babe Ruth made his first professional home run in Fayetteville in 1914. That year, team owner Jack Dunn had put together a team of former Major Leaguers, including Ruth, to come to Fayetteville for spring training. Fleishman's father and a friend, Jim Johnson, paid all the bills for the team.
