Happy Birthday Roger Maris!!!

Happy Birthday Roger Maris!!!

We’ve got to take a few minutes out of the day today to honor and celebrate the great Roger Maris.

A star from the most legendary franchise in the history in the sport’s history, Maris will always be known as the man who broke Babe Ruth’s record.  His story, as documented in the movie *61, is fantastic and worthy of every baseball fan’s attention.

Maris played in the majors for 12 seasons, spending his greatest years with the Yankees.  In total, Maris slugged 275 home runs, but that season of 1961 where he connected for 61 home runs and 141 RBI will go down as one of the most impressive offensive seasons in baseball history.

Maris is a 4-time All-Star, and 2-time MVP winner.  He played in seven World Series match-ups, winning three championship titles!!!

Happy Birthday Mr. Maris!!!  You are missed and loved!!!
