Roger Maris hit 61 home runs in a season for the New York Yankees. As it stands, that's now tied for the American League all-time single season home run record. Aaron Judge smacked homer No. 61 in Toronto on Wednesday night.
But what should the "real" home run record be?
Barry Bonds hit 73 home runs in a season. However, to many, that record has been tainted due to the steroid scandal.
Roger Maris Jr. is in that camp.
"Roger Maris Jr. said that if Aaron Judge hits 62 home runs, he should be celebrated as the single-season home run champ. Asked if he considers Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire illegitimate, Maris said: "I do. I think most people do,'" Bryan Hoch tweeted.
Many disagree with Maris Jr's comments, though.
The Bonds, McGwire, Sosa era has been tainted, but the home runs were still hit.
To many, they still stand as the records.
Maris Jr., though, believes the record should go to a "clean" player.
The MLB world has continued to debate the all-time home run records and that isn't going away anytime soon.
