Melbourne, July 12 (ANI): In an unusual quest in treasure hunting history, a Massachusetts man is searching underwater for Babe Ruth's piano.

According the Boston Globe, Kevin Kennedy of Sudbury thinks he may have found part of the piano that once belonged to baseball legend Ruth in a local body of water known as Willis Pond, reports the Courier Mail.

Two local men told Kennedy they tipped a decaying piano into the pond in 1973 and he believes it could have been Ruth's.

Until now a 1.8m-square piece of wood has been recovered that Kennedy took to a piano craftsman and a wood expert and both told him it was the veneer of a piano.

Next, Kennedy has set his sights on a large metal object in the pond that he believes could be the piano harp.

If it is, Kennedy said that he plans to restore it and put it in a new piano because "every piano has a soul. Every piano sounds different. We want to see what the Babe's piano sounds like". (ANI)
