Jake Curzon, of South Elgin, Illinois, decided to take matters into his own hands after the coronavirus pandemic put a halt to baseball.
“We were just sad to hear that COVID-19 stopped baseball,” the 10-year-old told CBS News’ Steve Hartman.
The young boy poured his heart out in a letter to the only person he knew could understand his sorrow, Mr. Babe Ruth. Although the Yankee great died 72 years ago, Curzon was determined to get the letter to him.
He addressed the letter to the Gate of Heaven cemetery in Hawthorne, New York, where Ruth is buried, CBS News said. The staff posted the letter right on his marker so Ruth couldn’t miss it.
“I thought you would be interested in knowing this is the year 2020 and we are in a world pandemic,” Curzon wrote. “They cancelled Baseball! We all have keeped praying for this to end.”
Now every time he sees someone released from the hospital, or hears good news about a vaccine, he likes to believe that the Babe is doing everything he can to bring back baseball!
