Roger Maris: 61 @ 50

As you might imagine, I have spent the better part of the day watching playoff baseball. I have now tuned into Game 1 of the ALDS between the Detroit Tigers and the New York Yankees after the Texas Rangers evened their ALDS with the Tampa Bay Rays. The broadcasters at TBS have just mentioned it was 50 years ago today that Roger Maris hit his 61st homerun of the 1961 season, breaking Babe Ruth's single season record of 60 homeruns which he set in 1927.
