This Day In New York Yankees History 9/26

On this day in 1961 Roger Maris would tie Babe Ruth for the all time single season home run record by smashing his 60th home run of the season. This would come with some controversy as the home run came in the 159th game of the season as the Babe did it in only 154 games.

On this day in 1998 David Cone set a new major league record for most years in between 20 win seasons as the Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 3-1 for his 20th win of the season. The last time Cone won 20 games was when he was 20-3 in 1988 as a member of the New York Mets.
