Take a Trip Back to 1927

On May 22, 1930, Babe Ruth hit a record 548-foot home run out of Philadelphia’s Shibe Park. Ruth played 171 of his American League games in our city—one of which was his final career game. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s new $12 million Moneyline Bar & Book and Level One Cocktail Bar & Lounge is carrying on the Babe’s record-breaking legacy with an exclusive $40,000 experience you’ll only find in Atlantic City. Dubbed The Bambino, after one of Ruth’s nicknames, baseball fans can reflect on the glory days with a rare check signed by the legend himself while listening to songs like Ben Bernie and His Orchestra’s “Ain’t She Sweet” played on a vintage Victrola record player. Both are gifted to one lucky baller as part of the experience. “That was one of the most popular songs in 1927, which is widely considered Babe’s best baseball season,” says Mike Woodside, vice president of marketing at Borgata. Top it off with a long pour of Macallan Fine & Rare Scotch whisky, and raise a glass—after all, Ruth still holds some of the longest-standing records in the MLB. 1 Borgata Way, Atlantic City, 609.317.1000, theborgata.com
