Babe Ruth Fan Featured in Detroit Free Press

One of BRC’s favorite Babe Ruth fans, Tom Derry, was featured in the Detroit Free Press this past Sunday, May 12th. We featured Tom in our Fan Stories section of the website, as he hosts an annual Babe Ruth Birthday Bash each February. That event is one of the biggest fan-driven annual events about Babe in the world.

What you may not know about, Tom, is that he is a diehard baseball fan overall and that’s especially true when it comes to his hometown team, the Detroit Tigers, and their former home, Tiger Stadium. Tom’s passion really shows in how he tries to preserve the playing field from the now-demolished Tiger Stadium.
