The Yankees will hold a special pregame ceremony on Friday, Sept. 23, to honor the 50th anniversary of Roger Maris setting the then-Major League record with 61 home runs in 1961.
Maris' family -- including his widow, Pat, and six children -- former teammates and Mickey Mantle's two sons will be in attendance.
It is nice to see the Yankees do what they should have done many times over....honor a man who gave everything for the game/team.
Maris was used and abused by Yankee fans and the organization as a whole. Too bad he isn't around to enjoy this.
It's time for Maris to go in the Hall!
