1961 Associated Press photograph of Roger Maris taking a powerful hack at a pitch against the Detroit Tigers. Maris was closing in on Babe Ruth, but the outcome was still very much undecided when this photo was taken. A beautiful image that seems to capture the strain and pressure on Maris even in a moment of extreme athleticism. A full paper caption is present that describes the action well.
