Back in Time with Roger and "The Mick"

You know I can't resist an opportunity to showcase Mickey Mantle! On September 3, 1961, Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle became the first pair of teammates to each hit 50 home runs in a single season. Mickey finished the year with 54, but had to watch from a hospital bed as Roger hit his historic record setting 61st.
