"Dorchester Girl, 15, made "home run" for Babe's Autograph"

The attached photo was submitted by Peggy Anne Canty of Dorchester at the Dec 2 Road Show.

It shows a baseball signed by the great Babe Ruth, of Reverse-the-Curse fame, along with a newspaper clipping describing how Ms. Canty obtained the autograph as a teenager in 1947. 

 The second attached photo is of Contributor Peggy Anne Canty, who also recorded on videotape for us the whole story behind this great photo. 

This photo was one of 52 contributed by Lower Mills residents at the "Mass. Memories Road Show" organized by UMass Boston's Massachusetts Studies Project in collaboration with the Lower Mills Branch of the BPL, and  SCI Dorchester.
