Impending weather moves event back a week

February 04, 2010|By Baltimore Sun reporter

The Babe Ruth Museum today announced it is postponing Friday's "Babe's Birthday Bash" event because of the inclement weather expected in the Baltimore area.

The new date for the Bash is next Friday (Feb. 12).

"Since weather forecasts are predicting the snow will begin Friday morning and continue through Saturday, we felt the appropriate thing to do was postpone the Bash by one week," said Mike Gibbons, executive director of the museum. "With the potential for 12 to 20 inches of snow, our thoughts immediately centered on the safety of our guests and we did not want anyone to put themselves at risk."

The event to celebrate the 115th anniversary of Ruth's birth in Baltimore will still be held at Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards and take place from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Anyone who is unable to attend the event on the new date can contact the museum at (410) 727-1539.

In addition, the museum has moved activities from the Babe Ruth Birthplace on Saturday to Saturday, Feb. 13. On that day, the Museum will show rare Babe Ruth movies at the Birthplace from 12 p.m. until closing in honor of Ruth's birthday. Admission to the Birthplace will be only $3, in honor of Ruth's playing number.
