When The Red Sox Sold Babe Ruth

Mar 4, 2016

Baseball fans in Vermont tend to root for the Red Sox or the Yankees. Either way, you've probably heard about how the Sox sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees, kicking off the Curse of the Bambino ... or so they say. But sports writer Glenn Stout says a lot of what we think we know about the sale is wrong or incomplete. We're looking at the untold story of Babe Ruth and the deal that changed baseball.

Glenn Stout is the series editor for The Best American Sports Writing, and the author of many books about baseball and other sports. His newest is "The Selling of the Babe: The Deal that Changed Baseball and Created a Legend."

Also on the program, how technology and a team of specialists from the University of Vermont's I-Team are helping a young boy with disabilities to communicate.
