Yankee Stadium Legacy: #38 Roger Maris (Again)

Roger Maris came over from the Kansas City Athletics and was named the American League MVP in his first season in pinstripes in 1960. Maris obviously followed up that MVP season with his record breaking season of 1961 which included him hitting 61 home runs that season, an all time single season record that many still consider to be the mark today. Maris won back to back MVP Awards for the Yankees in his first two seasons in pinstripes and hit a combined 100 home runs and drove in 254 RBI's.

38 days until Yankees Opening Day.
