Babe’s Daughter Throws Last Pitch

Babe’s Daughter Throws Last Pitch

On September 21, 2008, Yankee fans experienced their last game in the “The House That Ruth Built.”

The final home game for the Yankees included a pre-game ceremony that celebrated the history of the great stadium with a focus on many of its greatest players. The ceremony gave a special acknowledgement to the 85 years of Yankee history, starting with the first team to play in the Stadium – the 1923 Yankees, which included the Babe.

Babe’s Daughter, Julia Ruth Stevens, had the opportunity to throw out the last ceremonial first pitch in Yankee Stadium. It’s only fitting that Babe’s daughter would throw out the last pitch in “his” house. View the first pitch ceremony below:
