Verification, please: WaPo banner headline announces Ruth’s 15th home run?

November 27, 2017 · 0 comments

So I was watching yet another Jimmy Stewart movie, The FBI Story (1959), and my “baseballadar” picked up on this in a scene:

Note the headline, ostensibly from the Washington Post: “Babe Ruth Hits 15th Home Run.” Now I can’t enlarge it enough to catch the date, but it seems a bit far-fetched that the occasion would merit a banner headline like that. According to the story line, this scene is supposed to take place around the end of May, although I’m not sure of the year. Can anyone verify the veracity of the image?

Merci beaucoup.
