Roger Maris' 61st HR       BosNYY
OCTOBER 1, 1961 -- Both Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris spent the summer of 1961 chasing the ghost of Babe Ruth through the record books and AL ballparks. The mighty Yankees' three and four hitters -- known as the "M&M Boys" -- kept pace through the dog days, but as an injury sidelined Mantle, Maris continued the pressure-filled chase through autumn. On the last day of the season, facing Boston's Tracy Stallard and an asterisk, Rog finally launched the bomb that put him in the record books.
