It has been renovated considerably since the Bambino lived in it, but I’m told that there are still caches of beer and hot dogs all over the property. From Realtor.com:
Before being sold to baseball’s so-called Evil Empire, the New York Yankees, Ruth spent five seasons with the Boston Red Sox in the early part of his career. During that time he lived in a green clapboard farmhouse aptly named Home Plate Farm. Located in Sudbury, MA, the historic property originally hit the market in 2012 for $1.65 million but has since relisted at $1.325 million.
Actually, there are supposedly burn marks on a wood floor that came from Ruth’s cigars. Which, no, wouldn’t inspire me to drop $1.325 million on the joint, but would make me consider crashing an open house.
