About The M61 Maris Vintage Wood Bat:
Maris, from Fargo, North Dakota, is best know for hitting 61 homer runs in 1961, setting a new big league record, The previous mark was held by Babe Ruth, set 34 years earlier. Interesting is that Maris' bat is surprisingly similar in girth as Ruth's bat...but a whole lot lighter as, 30+ years after Ruth, Maris faced very different pitching. But don't get fooled, Maris' bat is still very heavy compared to pro bats of today.
Era: c. 1950s
