   George Herman Babe Ruth’s contract was purchased by the New York Yankees from the Boston Red Rox in 1919. Three years later, The Bambino bought a two-acre property Sudbury, Massachusetts. He called it Home Plate Farm. The baseball legend sold the property in 1926 after divorcing his wife, Helen.

   Though the farm is gone, the house is still in place. The property also includes a large barn, as well as, a garage. Today, the over-5,000 square foot home has been renovated with modern-day conveniences, including a gourmet kitchen with cherry wood cabinets, a spacious sunroom, and cheerful living areas with exposed beams, stately Rumford fireplaces, and built-in cabinetry. The Sultan of Swat would recognize original features  intact. For example, the living room floor contain burn marks from Ruth’s cigar ashes.

   The property is being offered for $1.65 million. The listing is found on www.realtor.com, and the agent is Scott Adamson of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. Now’s the time to get in on this piece of history!

 Until next time>                              “never forget”
