Maris hit 61 homers in 1961.  

But Maris HR'ed 61 HRs during the 162 game season.  Ruth hit 60 HRs during the season via 154 games.  

I think there might still be as a "seasonal" asterisk in the Hall of Fame. Not sure.

Aaron Judge hit 62nd homers in 2022 ! Judge broke Maris' record.  

Judge will be a free agent.  Will the Mets get him?  Will the Yankees get him?  Others?  Probably LA Dodgers.  Astros?  Who knows.  Will update.

It's all about money.  Kinda.  

In other words, again  . . . 

Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs (HRs) in a 154 game season.

Roger Maris hit 61 HRs in 1961, in a 162 game season.

Aaron Judge hit 62 HRs in 2022, which broke Maris' record.

There should be a distinction between a 154 game season vs. a 162 game season.

And then there is Barry Bonds.  According to the web: "San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds . . . hit his record-breaking 73rd homer in a [162 game] season back" in 2001.

How many HRs did Barry Bonds hit in home runs in 154 games?  (Haven't found.)

She Told Me, in a Dream

Yeah, I thought about that dream, 

And I was mesmerized.


Google says, "mes·mer·ize


  1. hold the attention of (someone) to the exclusion of all else or so as to transfix them.
    "she was mesmerized by the blue eyes that stared so intently into her own"
      hypnotize (someone).
      "he was mesmerized when at the point of death" "

    • I forget.
