Graphic: Ruth tradedPosted: January 7, 2016
I don’t know who created this graphic, but it’s pretty brilliant. (It seems highly unlikely that it is a genuine front page from the time, but someone please correct me if I’m wrong!) Ruth’s leaving Boston to join the Yankees is one of those moments that has become part of the legend. Admittedly, seeing his face split like this is a bit disconcerting, but the idea behind the photo is pretty cool.
