Photo: Babe Ruth's Contract Sale to the Yankees


Nearly 95 years ago, the Boston Red Sox sold the contract of a superstar pitcher named Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees. During 15 seasons with the Yankees, the Babe established himself as perhaps the greatest player of all time. The sale took place on December 26, 1919, making Friday the 95th anniversary of one of the most monumental transactions in baseball history.

On this date in 1919, the @RedSox sold Babe Ruth's contract to the @Yankees.

Whether it's with contract sales or Santa Claus costumes, the Great Bambino still keeps us entertained.
