Uploaded to YouTube by vintage film restorer Guy Jones, this great clip from 1931 shows parts of the New York Yankees opening game, including a home run by legendary slugger Babe Ruth.
Additional pieces from the opening day April 1931 game, I wasn't aware of this when I was making that video. Babe Ruth's home run and a short speech by Jimmy Walker from a separate newsreel. Clearly rough quality but I thought baseball fans would enjoy the material nonetheless
