The Way We Were ::: 1914 ::: CANADA

That’s the Sanyo blimp moored at Toronto Island Airport at the farthest point of the southwest side, near Hanlon’s Point.

A couple of years ago.

Not 200 feet from…THAT SPOT where once stood a baseball stadium.

AND IN 1914 when everyone was watching… BABE RUTH hit his FIRST professional HOME RUN into the waters of Lake Ontario!

The ball landed in these very waters, shown in the picture before you!!

The historical baseball WAS NEVER found.

A PLAQUE memorializes the incident on Toronto Island.
