Cash and Colavito were better than Maris and Mantle in 1961
 
Quote:

In 1961, Major League Baseball was experiencing changes that left lifelong fans of the game feeling dreary and uneasy. Baseball was changing and in the course of five years, it had witnessed the uprooting of two beloved New York franchises. In turn, pushing westward for more money and fans.

The MLB expanded from eight teams per league to 10 and went to a 162 game format instead of the 154. With the expansion and extra games, it would mean that there would be weaker teams and a chance to perhaps go after records that hadnít been broken in decades. Of course, what I am referring to, is Babe Ruthís single-season home run record of 60.
