When Yankee Stadium first opened for business on April 18, 1923, more than 25,000 fans had to be turned away at the gates, though most, sensing the historical significance of the occasion, would linger outside in the cold just to hear the sounds of music and the roar of the crowd. Before the game Babe Ruth said: "I'd give a year of my life if I can hit a home run in the first game in this new park". His wish and that of the tens of thousands in attendance came true. In the third inning the Sultan of Swat christened "The House That Ruth Built" by hammering the first home run in Yankee Stadium history. This exceedingly scarce program, issued for the first game ever played at Yankee Stadium (vs. the Red Sox no less), is partially scored on the interior including period documentation of Ruth's historic third inning home run. The cover and interior pages are fairly clean, however, the cover has split at the spine. Very good condition.
