"In October 1961, one Yankee replaced another as the player to hit the most home runs in a single season. Roger Maris passed Babe Ruth's 1927 60-homer mark, hitting no. 61 on the last day of the season- in the fourth inning of game 162, off Boston rookie Tracy Stallard, and into the right-field seats of Yankee Stadium. The ball was caught by Sal Durante, a 19-year-old truck driver from Coney Island.
