This Day In Yankees History : 9/9/12

In the historic season of 1961 Roger Maris belted his 56th home run of the season to go along with Mickey Mantle's 52 becoming the highest total for two teammates ever in a season. The two guys that previously held the record, at 107 home runs combined, were a couple guys that go by the name of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.

In 2008 Derek Jeter passes Babe Ruth on the Yankees all time hit list with his 2,519th hit of his career. Only Lou Gehrig's 2,721 hits are ahead of Jeter on the Yankees all time hit list.
