Ex-King Of Swat Meets No-Hitter
75 Years Ago Today - Ebbets Field, Brooklyn - June 15, 1938
So, June 15th was a busy day in Babe Ruth history…although this day clearly belonged to Johnny Vander Meer and his second consecutive no-hitter. It was also historic for being the first ever night game at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. I was happy to find this particular photo because all of the versions I’ve seen of Babe and Johnny on the bench have Paul Derringer cropped out.
