Biography Roger Maris was born in Hibbing, Minnesota on September 10, 1934. His father, who worked for the Great Northern Railroad, moved the family to North Dakota in 1942, where Roger and Rudy, his older brother by one-year, grew up. The Maris brothers played sports and attended Shanley High School in Fargo, North Dakota. It was in the 10th grade when Roger met Patricia, his future wife, at a high school basketball game. Roger played baseball in the American Legion program during the summers, since the North Dakota high schools with the cold weather did not have a program. He led his American Legion team to the state championship. With his excellent speed, Roger was a standout in football as well. In one game against Devil's Lake his senior year, he scored four touchdowns on kickoff returns to set a national high school record. Roger was recruited by legendary coach Bud Wilkinson to play for the University of Oklahoma, but with a professional baseball contract looming, Roger gave up his scholarship at the University of Oklahoma to pursue a career in baseball. He signed a $15,000 contract to play for the Cleveland Indians organization. Roger spent four years in the minor leagues playing for Fargo-Moorhead, Keokuk, Tulsa, Reading, and Indianapolis before making it to the major leagues.

Roger Maris
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Roger Eugene Maris September 10 December 14 ), was a baseball player primarily remembered for breaking Babe Ruth 's 34-year-old single-season home run record in . His record 61 home runs stood until , when Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa both surpassed it. Born in Hibbing, Minnesota , of Croatian background, Maris grew up in Grand Forks, North Dakota and Fargo, North Dakota and made his Major League Baseball debut in with the Cleveland Indians . The next year, he was traded to the Kansas City Athletics , whom he represented in the All-Star Game in in spite of missing 45 games to an appendix operation. Kansas City frequently traded its best players to the New York Yankees , and Maris was no exception, going to New York in a seven-player trade in December 1959. Early on, Maris had exhibited an independent, no-nonsense personality. Recruited to play football at the University of Oklahoma, he arrived in Oklahoma City on a bus and found no one from the University there to greet him. He turned around and went back to Fargo. When he showed up in New York to join the Yankees, he was dressed in blue jeans and a sport shirt. When told to get a better wardrobe, he snapped, "If they don't like how I dress, I'll go back where I came from." That seemingly curmudgeonly side of Roger Maris only encouraged the New York sportswriters to look for things to criticize. They called Maris aloof, rude, and a hick.

Career Batting Record Other Resources Instead of becoming a hero for hitting 61 home runs in 1961 to break Babe Ruth's long-standing single season record, Maris was despised, even hated, by many fans. Soft-spoken and modest, he didn't respond well to the media pressure than engulfed him as he approached the record, and he was often curt and discourteous with sportswriters. Unfortunately, that single season also obscured his all-around ability. He wasn't a great baseball player, perhaps, but he was a very good one, an excellent defensive right fielder with an outstanding arm as well as a power hitter. And he did won the most valuable player award twice, a feat accomplished by only a handful of players. Maris Joined the Cleveland Indians in 1957 and was traded to the Kansas City Athletics during the 1958 season. The Athletics sent him to the New York Yankees in 1960. He promptly led the league with 112 RBI and a .581 slugging percentage, hitting 39 home runs. He won his first MVP award that year. In 1961, Maris and teammate Mickey Mantle had a long duel for the home run title. Mantle faded toward the end of the season and finished with 54 but Maris, despite the pressure, hit his 61st on the last day of the season. He also led the league with 132 runs scored and 142 RBI to win the MVP award for the second year in a row and was also named male athlete of the year by the Associated Press.

Encyclopedia Article Multimedia 2 items Maris, Roger (1934-1985), American baseball player, who hit 61 home runs in 1961, breaking the single-season record of 60 that Babe Ruth had set in 1927. Maris held the home run record until 1998, when Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa both broke it. Roger Eugene Maris was born in Hibbing, Minnesota, and grew up in Fargo, North Dakota. After high school, he signed with the Cleveland Indians and joined their minor league system. The left-handed-hitting outfielder broke in with the major league club in 1957, batting .235 with 14 home runs and 51 runs batted in (RBIs). During the 1958 season the Indians traded him to the Kansas City Athletics, and following the 1959 season the Athletics traded him to the New York Yankees . In 1960 Maris hit .283 with 39 home runs and a league-leading 112 RBIs. He also won a Gold Glove Award for fielding excellence. His season earned Maris the American League most valuable player (MVP) award. In 1961 Maris became a household name as he and teammate Mickey Mantle chased the home run record that Ruth had set in 1927. Mantle was the favorite of many fans and media members, but an injury late in the season took him out of the running. Left alone in the spotlight, Maris struggled at times to deal with the attention. Ruth had become such a mythic figure to many Yankee fans that they openly rooted against Maris. According to some stories, the ordeal was so stressful that Maris started to lose his hair. Nevertheless, he continued to hit home runs, knocking his 61st on the final day of the season. He also drove in 142 runs and won the MVP award again. Maris’s outstanding season was marred somewhat by baseball commissioner Ford Frick’s ruling in July that his home run record and any subsequent ones would be marked with an asterisk in the record books because they were set in a 162-game season. Ruth had set his in a 154-game season.

ROGER MARIS Baseball Player Roger Maris hit 61 home runs in 1961 to break baseball's single-season record of 60 set in 1927 by Babe Ruth . Maris set the record after a spirited season-long duel with fellow New York Yankee Mickey Mantle , who hit 54 homers the same year. Though Maris was the American League's MVP in both 1960 and 1961, he was not considered a major star and was maligned by some fans who felt he wasn't fit to stand alongside the legendary Ruth. (Similar sentiments cropped up when Hank Aaron beat Ruth's career home run record.) For some time Maris's record was considered unofficial, since it was achieved in 162 games rather than the 154-game season Ruth played; this is often referred to as "the asterisk" by Maris's name. In 1991 baseball commissioner Fay Vincent declared Maris to be the sole and official record holder, thereby ending the controversy. Maris's record was broken by Mark McGwire , who hit 70 home runs during the 1998 season.
Extra credit : Maris wore #9 and batted left-handed... He was traded to St. Louis in 1967 and retired after the 1968 season.

Assault on the Record If either Mantle or Maris hits 61 home runs this season, will he break Ruth's record? Herewith is a straight answer to a hot question More flashbacks by Walter Bingham Issue date: July 31, 1961 Of all the records in sports, none is more honored, none more renowned than the 60 home runs Babe Ruth hit in 1927. Since then many men have seriously attacked it, but for every June challenge there has been a September reckoning. Twice men have come close. Jimmy Foxx and Hank Greenberg each hit 58 home runs, Foxx in 1932, Greenberg six years later. No one has done that well since, but last week, as the season moved into its second half, it began to look as if Ruth's record finally might fall. The challenge comes not from one man but two, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, teammates on the New York Yankees. Mantle and Maris, with 37 and 36 home runs apiece, are currently running about 20 games ahead of the pace Ruth set in 1927. Mantle hit his 37th home run in the Yankees' 92nd game. Ruth did not hit his 37th until the Yankees' 114th game. Such comparisons with Ruth's pace have always been deceptive, however, since Ruth hit so many of his home runs late in the season. After 123 games of the 1927 season, Ruth had hit only 40 home runs, but in his last 32 games he hit 20, 17 of them in September. (Ruth's late surge crushed his teammate Lou Gehrig, who was tied with Ruth 44-44 on Labor Day. Gehrig finished with 47.) Any serious challenger must go into September with a cushion.

      Roger Maris, famous for his 61 home runs in 1961, was one of Fargo's most famous native sons. He was a well-rounded athlete starting with basketball while in grade school. In high school he played football, basketball and track. During the summers he played baseball for the Fargo American Legion team. He was excellent at baseball and football (once returning four kickoffs for touchdowns in one game). The 1953 Northern League championship banner was orginally part of the Roger Maris Museum Visitors look at the collected trophies of Roger Maris' career in original case After signing a bonus contract with the Cleveland Indians, Roger was assigned to their Class C farm club in Fargo: the Fargo-Moorhead Twins of the old Northern League. His first season was outstanding and he was named "Rookie of the Year" while helping lead the F-M Twins to the 1953 Northern League Championship. He continued a successful career and became most famous for breaking Babe Ruth's single season home run record with 61 homers in 1961. "61 in '61" is part of the "logo" for Roger and the museum.
