Ringing out ’61 with 61!

That was the headline in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch when this picture appeared in the Sports Section on October 2nd, 1961…Maris the previous day had hit number 61 to break the Babe’s record…here he connects with the Tracy Stallard fastball that rockets into the lower right field grandstand at Yankee Stadium…making Maris then and in the eyes of most true baseball fans, myself included, still today the holder of the record for most home runs hit in a season!
