Want a piece of Babe Ruth history??

 In Massachussetts, there's a little place for sale called Sudbury Farm. Babe Ruth fell in love with it and bought it in 1922.

   Ruth owned it and lived there for several years, calling it "Home Plate Farm" and raised chickens, a horse, a cow, several turkeys and pigs.

   After his divorce from wife Helen in 1926, he sold the farm.  You can own it now for only $1.35 million.
