Today Should Be a Yankee Fan’s Holiday

Anyone who knows me knows that I am one of the biggest New York Yankee fan around in this area. I live and die Yankee pinstripes.  It is that dedication that makes today a national holiday for all New York Yankee fans.

That’s because on this day 93 years ago, the Boston Red Sox, of all teams, made a trade with the Yankees. And what a trade it was.  The Red Sox owner Harry Frazee parted with the now legendary Babe Ruth for $125,000 cash and a $350,000 loan which actually made the Yankees part owners of the Red Sox. For the Yankees, the rest is history as Yankee Stadium became known as “The House That Ruth Built”.

For Yankee fans, it was the most lopsided deal ever made and it went the Yankees way on this day, January 3rd, 1920.
