    Any idea of the history behind that?
    I'm working on a scan & download, maybe there are some clues in the background...

    Also: I'm aware that Babe played a barnstorming game in Oct 1924 in Brea and hit a (estimated) 600 ft homer there. The site is now a strip mall.

    But I'm told he also played at Amerige Park in Fullerton.
    That park still stands, on Commonwealth Av, right across from Fullerton City Hall. Any details/photos about that game?
    You`ll have more response with this question in the history forum
