Babe Ruth's bat to be on display in Ellicott City

Babe Ruth's 1927 record-setting home-run bat will be on display for Howard County baseball fans Friday at the Miller Branch Library in Ellicott City.

The event, from 7-9 p.m. in the library's first-floor meeting rooms, will feature Ruth's bat — available to be photographed — as part of a celebration of Ruth's connection to Howard County. In 1914, Ruth was married to his first wife, Margaret Helen Woodford, in Ellicott City's St. Paul's Catholic Church.

The event is co-sponsored by the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum and will feature ballpark food and drinks and a talk from baseball historian and Howard Community College professor Jerrold Casway, who will speak on Baltimore's 1882-99 baseball team.

Admission is $20 per person, $15 for Howard County Historical Society members. Space is limited. Proceeds benefit the historical society.
