It's the summer of 1922 at the Polo Grounds in New York City. The Yankees will move into their new ballpark in The Bronx next summer. For now, this is home, and there's no mistaking the Yankee batter, even though he isn't yet wearing his familiar No. 3. Babe Ruth and the Yankees are hosting the St. Louis Browns, a team they will battle all summer before finally winning the American League pennant by one game.
Product FeaturesSt. Louis first baseman George Sisler will capture the American League batting crown with a .420 average. And the World Series will be played at the Polo Grounds between the Yankees and the Giants, the park's full-time tenant (the Giants won in four games). There's no optical illusion here; in this horseshoe shaped ballpark the right field foul pole is only 258 feet away. Check out the National League coats of arms on the facing of the roof. They were removed after the '22 season.
