House Ruth Built: Bambino Casino

Updated on December 5, 2011

 "There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human society, are created, strengthened and maintained."

Winston Churchill

The financial news about economic ruin took a seat on the bleachers in the Bronx. The headliner story was of a house that stood before the Great Depression. It lived up to its billing as if to follow a Hollywood script.

The evening epitomized the very element of the game of Baseball, to “fagetabodit”, even if for just one night. That magical philosophy had the legs to last 85 seasons. Let the record show 1923 turned out to be a jackpot year for what was to be the most famous venue in sports.

Growing old, as a Yankee fan was pleasurable even during the lean years. What other experience in life can promise not to disappoint?

Without question it is about the history and tradition of great teams. It is about the class act of sports figures as role models, and foremost it is an about being proud to bleed Yankee pinstripes.

Although the move is only across the street it is indeed the end of an era.

In the big game, nothing is more intimidating than an adversary whom exudes confidence. The psychological advantage being, you cannot count on your opponent beating himself.

This is the element winners all have in common. In this instance it turned the “House that Ruth Built” into the mystique of the Bambino Casino. gjf

      Hi Bay,

      sporting events on tv just don't do appreciation justice. The live theather falls in that category as well.

      What a great story! I hate to admit this, but I have never been to a professional baseball game (shameful I know). I hope to have that pleasure someday soon!
