Sixty years after Roger Maris broke Babe Ruth’s “unbreakable” home-run record, author Andy Strasberg shares his obsession with baseball, life, and a remarkable era in American history in his memoir of the era, My 1961.
My 1961 recounts a thirteen-year-old’s infatuation with baseball in a season dominated by Roger Maris’s bid to break Babe Ruth’s single-season home-run record in the midst of the New York Yankees’ pursuit of a World Series championship.
