    Ya but Elston Howard was traded to Boston. He didn't chose to leave New York.
    He did turn out to be a good acquisition for the Red Sox because he definitely helped the Sox down the stretch to win the pennant in '67.

    • Love that Big Papi picture. BTW, what are we arguing about now? You can actually make an All Star Team of players that have left Boston to sign with the Yankees.

          You're probably right!

                OK people. Let's try to keep up with the topic conditions set! (The player chooses to leave NY for Boston.)

                In this case, this
                'member' posted a Babe Ruth pic. (Much appreciated but again, hardly relevant)

                The first condition not met here is that Ruth didn't choose to leave NY for Boston. Secondly, he was sold by Boston to NY.

                Thank you all for your attention in this matter.

                  Well, he didn't go back to Boston when his contract ran out... Well, excluding that year with the Braves.

                  I'm still playing him in RF...

                  • Ruth still fits the criteria because he did choose to leave the Yankees to go to Boston in 1935 even if it was the Braves.

                      Ruth was given his outright release from the Yankees prior to going to the Braves (see "reserve clause").

                      • Yes, but that was a technicality. Ruth wanted out of New York when it was clear Ruppert wasn't going to ever consider him for Yankee manager and the Braves owner, Fuchs, made an appeal to Ruppert to give Ruth his outright release so he'd be free to sign with the Braves (where he conned Ruth into thinking he might one day become manager).
