Babe Ruth hit his 500th home run on this date in 1929. The 1st professional baseball player to do so.
Now that’s old school!
And since we mentioned school, it’s worth noting several SCHOOLS START again this week (Carson City, Douglas & Washoe Counties.) So please be careful. Watch out for kids walking and biking to school. And have some patience for families trying to drop off and pickup their children before and after school.
