This Day in Baseball History:
October 1, 1961 > Roger Maris of the New York Yankees blasts his 61st home run of the season, eclipsing the 34-year-old record held by the legendary Babe Ruth. The milestone shot, which comes against Boston's Tracy Stallard, turns out to be all the offense the Yankees need in a 1-0 victory.
