This Day In New York Yankees History 9/29

On this day in 1934 Babe Ruth hit his 659th and final home run in a New York Yankees uniform. The Bambino had 49 home runs for the Red Sox before being sold off to the Yankees. Ruth will add six home runs for the Braves before calling it a career.

On this day in 1961 Whitey Ford got the win to improve his record to 25-4 on the season. Whitey also threw 283 innings this season and did not allow a single stolen base off of him.

On this day in 1987 the Yankees captain Don Mattingly set a new major league record for hitting his sixth grand slam of the season. Somehow these six grand slams would be the only six he would hit in his entire 14 year career.
