A Unique Baseball Legacy in the Philippines

Having been born in the Bronx, as a young boy Ambassador Quinn was a New York Yankees fan, and, in fact, was present at Babe Ruth Day at Yankee Stadium in 1948. Therefore, when he served as Deputy Ambassador in the Philippines from 1987-1990, he took the opportunity to visit the baseball stadium in Manila at which two of the greatest New York Yankee legendary players had hit home runs during a winter trip in 1934.
