This Day In New York Yankees History 9/3

On this day in 1961 Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle become the first set of teammates to hit 50 home runs in the same season when Mickey Mantle belted his 50th of the season against the Detroit Tigers.

On this day in 2008 MLB Umpires tested out their new advanced replay system, which took two minutes and fifteen seconds, when Alex Rodriguez hit a ball off of a cat walk in Tropicana Field. Initially the ruling was a home run but when Rays catcher Dioner Navarro disputed the call the call was reviewed and then over turned. It figures the first every replay system use was on a play that included Alex.
