Where are we going today?

When approached with the idea of creating a museum in his honor, New York Yankee outfielder Roger Maris, who hailed from Fargo, initially declined out of humility. Eventually, though, he would say, "Put it where people will see it, and where they won't have to pay for it." Maris is best known for hitting sixty-one home runs in 1961. His 61 in \'61 set a new major league record, breaking Babe Ruth's previous mark of 60 hit in 1927.

    If you're a baseball fan and have the time this is a worthwhile stop. If you've seen "61" or happen to be a fan of Roger even more so. This is a little piece of Cooperstown far from New York where you can see some classic baseball items from Maris' career: awards, uniforms and watch a short biography of his career.

    Whatever the case it is easy in, easy out and won't take much time.
