COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Babe Ruth's Hall of Fame plaque is headed out the door, and the first stop is Yankee Stadium.
In support of a tourism promotion by New York state, the Baseball Hall of Fame will transport Ruth's plaque on a historic visit to the Bronx on Tuesday when the Yankees host the Mets. Then the plaque is off to Grand Central Terminal on Wednesday.
The plaque will be a part of a pre-game ceremony in recognition of a Ruth exhibit opening in Cooperstown next month. Ruth made his major league debut almost 100 years ago - on July 11, 1914.
This marks the first time the plaque has traveled outside Cooperstown since Ruth was inducted with the first class in 1936. It will be back at the museum Thursday for visitors to view.
