On September 20, 1919 — 1919 – On Babe Ruth day at Fenway Park, the Bambino ties Ned Williamson’s major league mark of 27 home runs in a season with a game-winner off Lefty Williams of the Chicago White Sox. Ruth also scores the winning run in both ends of the doubleheader. Ironically, it will be the last game he plays for the Boston Red Sox in Fenway. Four days later he will hit number 28 over the roof of the Polo Grounds.
