However, the Globe could use its own refresher course in Red Sox history. Page 5 states:
The bitter Yankees-Red Sox rivalry dates back to the prehistoric ages -- or at least to 1918, when Sox pitcher-turned-outfielder Babe Ruth was sold to the Yankees.The Ruth sale was announced in January 1920 -- not in 1918. Indeed, Ruth blasted a major league record 29 home runs -- while becoming the most famous player in the game -- while playing for the Red Sox in 1919.
Why can't the Globe get its facts straight about the sale of the greatest player of all time?
