Babe Ruth loved Dunsmuir

On October 22, 1924, Babe Ruth played an exhibition game in Dunsmuir as part of his nationwide barnstorming tour. The Bambino was joined by Yankee teammate Bob Meusel and manager Christy Walsh. The game was sponsored by the Dunsmuir Lions Club and drew 900 people in the stands.

Babe enjoyed his stay and wrote the following letter after his appearance:
“To everybody (and that means everybody) in Dunsmuir, Calif.

“We don’t know yet how to tell you what a wonderful time we had in Dunsmuir. When it comes to beautiful girls, wonderfully fine fellows, and the real two-fisted spirit of California — little Dunsmuir gave us more laughs, more hospitality, more thrills, and more things to remember than any place between Broadway & Shasta.”
