Roger Maris.

Although I never saw him play (and am not a Yankee fan) I enjoyed reading about him and the movie *61. He had great numbers and was a big piece of those great Yankee teams. He got overlooked because of Mantle and from what i learned it was incredible the way he held himself given the abuse he took. The 61 homers should be almost enough by itself as he not only beat the Babe's record but is probably the record holder for HR's is a season that actually did it clean.
