Roger Maris was still a young man in 1968 and only seven years removed from the greatest season a home run hitter had ever had in baseball history, but he announced before the start of the World Series that he would be retiring. Aged beyond his actual years, Maris never quite got over the train of 1961 and he knew he never would. A poignant image showing Maris looking larger than life in the batting cage for the Cardinals and taking hacks before his final go around in the big leagues. A bold image in great shape with a cool newspaper caption on the back.
