Yesterday and Today: Babe Ruth

This is the latest installment in our photo series depicting baseball's stars of yesteryear on the site of present-day Navin Field, site of Detroit's historic Tiger Stadium (1912-2009).

Photoshop by Nick Yim. Current photo and concept by Tom Derry.

Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs at Navin Field, the most of any opposing player.
Many of the Bambino's longest blasts were launched right here in Detroit, including number 700 in 1934.
The Navin Field Grounds Crew is honored to be able to preserve this historic site.
