Ruth Lumber Cork Company

Just read in Bill James’ Historical Baseball Abstract that Babe Ruth was caught using a corked bat in 1923. That was new to me.

Doubt there was a big media sensation made about that when it happened. Nor do you hear about anyone casting doubt on Ruth’s records now because of it.

Nor should they in my opinion.

Bet the Babe grumbled a lot about it at the time, though.
