1961 Regular Season
Maris hits 61
New York vs Boston
1 - 0
1 October, 1961
Though Roger Maris is now lauded as one of New York's greats, many forget that he was not the favorite to pass Babe Ruth's single-season HR mark. Most of the world wanted to see Mickey Mantle take over the title. In fact, Maris' teammates said the season of 61 was so stressful for Maris that his hair was literally falling out. It came down to the final 3 games of the season for Maris to set a new record and he did it against Chicago on October 1, 1961. At his second at bat he took two balls, waiting for his pitch, and then took a fastball deep to right, 360 feet for the record. (History note: Back when Ruth set the record with 60, he was playing in a 154 game season. Maris was playing in a 162 game schedule.)
