Biography casts Fargo great as ‘reluctant hero’
As a kid growing up in the Bronx, Tom Clavin recalls the boos Roger Maris got at Yankee Stadium. He remembers the back-to-back Most Valuable Player awards and the single-season home run record.
The Roger Maris Celebrity Benefit Golf Tournament committee announced Tuesday that it will give a record $130,000 to beneficiaries Hospice of the Red River Valley, Fargo Shanley High School and the MeritCare Roger Maris Cancer Center.
Now is the time to give Roger Maris and Henry Aaron asterisks next to their names in baseball’s record book. The asterisks would signify steroid-free performance. Baseball commissioner Bud Selig is considering returning the all-time home run record to Aaron if it’s proved that Barry Bonds used steroids. Aaron thinks it should be left alone: “You’d have to go back and change all kinds of records.” Maris would probably feel the same, but the commissioner should note in the record book that Maris and Aaron set the records the right way. If Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa and Bonds want an asterisk, they can prove they merit it.
