Roger Maris breaking Babe Ruth's record was one of the defining moments in baseball history. With so many juiced records these days from steroids and PEDs the guy who first broke the home run record should be immortalized in Cooperstown. With all the media scrutiny and pressure on Maris he rose to the challenge and did what not even The Mick could do. That scene when he rounded the bases and stood there waving to the crowd (because his teammates wouldn't let him in the dugout) will be a permanent fixture in baseball history and he should be honored for that. How can there be such an amazing exhibit for 61 in the Hall of Fame but Maris himself not be in there?
