BALL GLOVE WAS BIG ‘CATCH’ AT AUCTION

Babe Ruth glove

(Fox News) – A baseball glove that Babe Ruth used nearly a century
ago while playing for the New York Yankees sold for a record $1.5
million at an auction on Saturday.
 

Ruth gifted the glove, which has light wear and even a "spatter
from tobacco juice," to Jimmy Austin, who played for the St.
Louis Browns.

It remained in Austin’s family until it was sold at the Louisville
Slugger Museum & Factory
auction on Saturday.
