For most of the '27 season, the spotlight focused on Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth as they matched home run for home run. In fact, the Yankee teammates each had 44 round-trippers through September 5. Until then, little attention had been paid to Ruth's single-season record of 59 home runs in 1921. That all changed, however, as September moved along. Gehrig tailed off; Ruth went on a tear. Indeed.
Product FeaturesThrough the 28th of the September, Ruth had walloped 14 homers in the month for a total of 57 on the season. Now, with three games remaining against the Washington Senators at Yankee Stadium, Ruth had a chance to break his record. And he did, first belting two homers on September 29, and then the record-breaker the following day. It's the bottom of the 8th inning here, 9/30/27, Mark Koenig on third, the game tied 2-2. The count is 1-1 as Ruth turns on a fastball from southpaw Tom Zachary and drives it deep into the right field seats. Sixty home runs! It is a single-season record that will stand until 1961 and Roger Maris.
