Yankees Want Maris to Play in All Remaining Games

Sept. 21, 1961 - Roger Maris (right) will avail himself of every opportunity to add to his total of 59 home runs. There are seven games left on the Yankees' schedule. Manager Ralph Houk (center) and the other Yankee players would like to see Maris play in every one of them, or at least until he has hit homer No. 61. Now that the pennant flag is theirs, the Yankees are beginning to talk openly about the Reds and such Cincinnati standouts as Frank Robinson, Vada Pinson, Joey Jay, and Bob Purkey.
