How far down the generational line will the Yanks honor Ruth?By
A few weeks ago, Ross at New Stadium Insider wondered why bloggers never pursue original stories. It’s a great thought, and one that we’ve been bouncing around at RAB for a while now. While we’re bouncing, Ross is out doing. He spoke with Linda Ruth Tosetti, Babe Ruth’s granddaughter, about her family’s treatment by the Yankees leading up to the opening of the new Stadium. Her family hasn’t been much involved since the new Stadium groundbreaking ceremony, in which the team declared that it’s time to “say goodbye to the House That Ruth Built and hello to the House that George Steinbrenner Built.” Ross does a great job framing the story, and asks a crucial question about a third of the way through: “After all, how far down the lineage of the great Babe Ruth should the Yankees cater to their every request?” Definitely a quality pre-game read.
