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.
The Roger Maris Museum is located in the West Acres Shopping Center (I-29 & 13th Avenue South), Fargo, North Dakota. West Acres is conveniently located located one mile north of the I-29/I-94 Interchange.Get directions
