It was Oct, 22, 1924 - less than a year after Yankee Stadium opened in the Bronx in April 1923 - when Ruth, as part of a national barnstorming tour, played an exhibition game at Dunsmuir City Park in CA, against players from Dunsmuir, Mount Shasta and Weed.
This is a drawing of of the difference between the "House That Ruth Built", old Yankee Stadium in 1924 and what size and shape of the new Yankee stadium.
