Babe Ruth's first Yankee Stadium home run bat up for auction
It could be the Holy Grail of sports memorabilia. The bat Babe Ruth swung to hit the first home run in Yankee Stadium - against the Boston Red Sox -- is up for auction. The Louisville Slugger had passed from its previous owner, Hollywood talent agent Victor Orsatti, to his caretaker -- who, ironically, is a Red Sox fan. She kept it under her bed for more than ten years before deciding to sell it. The auction director for SportsCards Plus says the seller intends to use part of the proceeds to help orphan children, much in the same way Ruth himself did after growing up in a school for boys in Baltimore. One worry is that the historic bat could wind up in the wrong hands -- such as someone wanting to destroy it in hopes of ending the so-called "Curse of the Bambino" against the Red Sox. SportsCards Plus and Sotheby's will auction off the bat in New York on December second.
