"Caught Roger Maris' 61st HR 10-1-61"
I sent a request to Sal Durante asking him to tell the story on a baseball about his memory of catching Roger Maris' 61st home run and this is what I received:
"I went to the ticket window with my girl friend now still
my wife of 50 yrs. It was the Red Sox."
"It was the 4th inn. Roger hit a line drive. I jumped on my seat reaching as high as I could. I caught the 61st. Roger Maris is the single season leader."
