Should I Believe Everything I Read?

I like reading some of the websites that show baseball history on a given day of the year.  On this day in 1935 Babe Ruth made his National League debut.  He hit a homer off of Carl Hubbell.

Should I believe the rest of the story?  It says that the day was snowy and the band was playing Jingle Bells.  I haven't tried to confirm this, but I like the story.



There certainly are not many people around who can remember that day since it was 82 years ago.  They'd probably need to be at least 78 years old to have a good memory of that day.  

I could check newspaper accounts, but I'm going to be busy doing my taxes for the rest of the night.

  1. Ruth was way before my time. But this set isn't. Right now the 1972 All-time Baseball Greats is the #1 set I'm trying to chase down on eBay.

  2. They can usually be found at a decent price. The conditions vary so much. I like this set a lot too, which is why it is going to be my starting point for making custom Kellogg's cards.
