[WATCH] Vintage Footage Show New York Yankees Opening Game and Babe Ruth Home Run in 1931

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
