Description

This book recounts the slugger Roger Maris's life before, during, and after his headline season of 1961, when the taciturn North Dakota native topped Babe Ruth's all-time record by hitting sixty-one homers. From his youth as a star high-school athlete and American Legion baseball player, Maris went on to big-time sports with the Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Athletics, New York Yankees, and St. Louis Cardinals.Author Rosenfeld argues that Roger's treatment by the press was both shabby and tragic and that Maris's midwestern modesty and his strength, his need for privacy, and his straightforward bluntness were often wrongly interpreted as arrogance and sullenness, a factor that led many to downplay his claim on the record books.
