April 29, 1918
Boston Red Sox v. Washington Senators
Game called at 2:45 pm because of a mist over the field and a cold east wind. It begins raining at 3:00 pm. Harry Frazee announces that he has been offered -- and has rejected -- $100,000 for Babe Ruth. "It is ridiculous to talk about it. Ruth is our big ace. He's the most talked of, most sought for, most colorful ball player in the game." Frazee does not discuss any details of the offer and does not name the team who approached him.
