Maris, a Fargo Shanley High School graduate, is the former New York Yankees slugger who broke Babe Ruth's single-season home run record with 61 homers in 1961. Maris helped start this tournament in 1984-one year before he died of lymphoma at the age of 51.
In the past 32 years, more than $2 million has been raised for the Roger Maris Cancer Center, Hospice of the Red River Valley and Shanley High School.
