Assuming for a moment that he never took a sick day, he attended every single game ever played at Three Rivers Stadium. Rather mind blowing.

I believe he witnessed Babe Ruth's last three home runs and Bill Mazeroski's walk off HR! Incredible!

Ruth's last season was 1935. I suppose he could have been at the game just not working.

He was a spectator for that game, according to the story. Is that 👌 with you 🤪?

It's amazing (to me) there are people still with us who remember seeing Ruth play. Indeed there are probably some who remember Cobb who played through 1928.
