Large 1961 photograph of New York Yankees slugger Roger Maris taking a mighty hack at a baseball in an attempt to inch closer to Babe Ruth's record of 60 homers. While he failed at this moment, he would ultimately connect and become the season record holder and one of the most important baseball players of all time. The strain on his face at this moment is indicative of the way the entire season went for Maris! The photograph is a unique new discovery in great shape, taken by a local New York photographer and offered here for the first time ever!
