1961* : the inside story of the Maris-Mantle home run chase by Phil Pepe( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Babe Ruth's 60 home runs for the 1927 New York Yankees stood for more than 30 years as the most hallowed mark in American sports, surviving threats from Hall of Famers Jimmie Foxx, Ralph Kiner, and Hank Greenberg. Yet in 1961, two Yankees experienced a season-long power surge and approached the Babe's mark. It was a surprise to few that Mickey Mantle, the Yankees' star center fielder who had already won four American League home run crowns and two MVP awards, found himself on pace to top 60. Joining Mantle in his chase for the record books was young right fielder Roger Maris, a small-town boy who unwillingly became a New York Yankee when he was traded by the Kansas City Athletics after the 1959 season. ... Including new interviews with Maris' teammates and others, 1961* provides a fresh look back at the home run chase that captivated a nation."--Jacket
