      THIS WAS 1961 WHEN AM PLAYING LITTLE LEAGUE. NEW YORK & YANKEE STADIUM WAS VERY FAR FROM CHARLESTON , SOUTH CAROLINE. I REMEMBER WATCHING ROGER MARIS HIT 60 & 61 ON BLACK & WHITE TV.

      WOW !! SUMMER O F 1961 WAS VERY EXCITING FOR BASEBALL . MICKEY & ROGER HOME RUN RACE TO CATCH BABES 60 HOME RUNS.
      I ALWAYS WONDER IF MICKEY HAD STAY HEALTHY THRU 1961 SEASON , IF HE WOULD BROKEN BABES 60 HOME RUN RECORD. ??
      VERY SAD HEAR MICKEYS ILLNESS 1995 & HIS PASSING.
