Today in sports history September 3rd, 1961. Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle became the first pair of teammates to hit 50 home runs in one season. Think about how crazy that is. This team had Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio (not really a home run hitter). And these were the first pair in history of the sport to do it.
