Happy Anniversary Roger Maris!!!

On this day in 1961, you hit home run number 61 of your season setting a new all-time record for home runs hit in 1 season by a player.  This was a huge accomplishment as you passed the mighty and beloved Babe Ruth with this homer.

Although this record no longer stands today and has been eclipsed a handful of times since, at the time this was a major accomplishment and today we remember you and how much you had to go through during the 1961 season to surpass this baseball record.

Congratulations to you Mr. Maris!!!
