Bebe Ruth in Hawaii, 1933.

BABE RUTH ASKED TO PLAY TO BALL GAMES HERE IN HONOLULU

There recently were discussions pertaining to the asking of the king of baseball, Babe Ruth [Bebe Ruth], the champion batter of America for many years in the past until this year, to get him to agree to play two games here in Honolulu at the Kamoiliili ball field this upcoming October 21 and 22.

Mr. Herb Hunter, a ball player promoter, spoke with J. Ashman Biven [J. Ashman Beaven], the one who leases out the ball field, about bringing the champion batter here and playing two games [kemu].

These two gentlemen recently spoke to work out the football game schedule since all the days good for football games are booked from now until the beginning of next year.

This is the highest paid player on his team. He gets paid seventy thousand a season for playing. It is a little more sometimes or little less sometimes.
