Yankee Stadium Legacy: #39 Roger Maris

Roger Maris always had the media spotlight centered around him as he made his way into the record books in 1961. Maris chased down babe Ruth for the single season home run record with teammate Mickey Mantle, more commonly known as the M&M Boys. The Yankees slugger pounded out nine home runs in September that year to tie Ruth at 60 home runs and hit his 61st home run of the season on the last day of the season on October 1st. The Yankees would win that final game 1-0 in case you were wondering.

39 days until Yankees Opening Day.
