This Day In Yankees History 4/5

This Day In Yankees History... April 5th

In 1913 the Brooklyn Dodgers played their first game in Ebbets Field against the New York Yankees. Brooklyn would beat the Yankees 3-2 and Yankees Casey Stengel would hit the park's first home run, an inside the park home run, in the loss.

In 1925 Babe Ruth collapsed at a railroad station in Asheville, North Carolina. Later named the "bellyache heard round the world" because of a writer suggesting it was caused by hot dogs and soda this collapse caused Ruth to be out of the lineup until May after a hospital stay and surgery.
