Fields v. Hoyt

In 1935, Homer Hoyt took his son Robert to see the Boston Braves play the Chicago Cubs at Braves Field. Robert had recently broken his arm and had it in a cast. After Babe Ruth completed batting practice, Robert asked him to sign the cast. Rather than signing it, Ruth gave him the bat that he had used in batting practice. Decades later, Robert was unemployed and sold his bat to John Quincy. Shortly Robert’s death, his son Scott sold a bat to the plaintiff, Emmitt Fields, claiming it was the bat Babe Ruth had given to his father. Fields has sued Scott Hoyt alleging that Scott fraudulently induced him to purchase the bat.
