The foundation for the House That Ruth Built on the backs of Boston Red Sox..

The Owner of the Boston Red Sox (19161923),Harry Frazee ,Lacked Funds to Finance
a New Play called 'No, No Nanette' so he sold Babe Ruth To New York Yankee owners
Jacob Ruppert and Cap Huston in an all-cash deal of over --$100,000..

"The Curse of the Bambino"
The Boston Red Sox won four World Series in the eight years Babe Ruth played on the team.
In 1920 they sold Ruth to the New York Yankees for $125,000 and a $300,000 loan because
Boston's owner Harry Frazee needed cash to invest in a new play on Broadway....
...Ruth single handedly out homered the entire Boston team in 10 of the next 12 seasons.
....After selling Ruth, Boston has not won a single World Series Title.
The owner of the Red Sox put musicals ahead of baseball, and this is somehow the Yankees' fault? I like showgirls as much as the next guy, but trading Babe Ruth for a chance to back a Broadway show is like chosing to watch Glee instead of the World Series.
