Synopsis

Roger Maris by Anne M. Todd

With a combination of speed, strength, power, and agility, Roger Maris knew how to best help his team win games, whether it was running extra bases, bunting to advance a teammate, or throwing a man out at home plate from right field. In 1961, Maris found himself in a home-run race with fellow Yankee slugger Mickey Mantle to take over Babe Ruth's single-season record of 60. On the last day of the regular season, Maris cracked home run number 61, adding him to the record books. Considered by some sport critics to be a one-year wonder, Maris reached the World Series seven times in his 12-season career and was voted the Most Valuable Player in the American League for two consecutive years. In Roger Maris , read how this Sultan of Swat used his instincts to become a talented baseball player, as well as a doting father and a loving husband.
