Maris Jr. asks MLB to separate ‘clean and dirty records’

After Aaron Judge hit home run 61 nearly a week ago, Roger Maris Jr. news was made then he recognized the star of the New York Yankees as the ‘legitimate Home Run King of a season’ with his father, mentioning that for him the records imposed byr Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire y Sammy Sosa they are not ‘real’ because they were achieved with steroids, and he asked MLB to reconsider the numbers.

Through his Twitter account, Maris Jr. proposed something else to MLB: Separate the ‘clean’ records from the ‘dirty’ ones, making two separate categories for the home runs hit by Bonds and company, and those connected by his father and Aaron Judge.

Baseball should consider setting two separate home run records: Substance and Non-substance Home Runs. The MLB commissioner set two home run records in 1961, Babe Ruth was credited as the Home Run King with 60 and Roger Maris for his 61 in 162 separately.

Roger Maris’ then-record was under considerable scrutiny, as it was achieved in a 162-game campaign, while Babe Ruth’s was made when 154 games were played and many believed it was ‘illegitimate’, for achieving it in more games than the Baby.

I started as a rookie at Al Bat in early 2018 and am in my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, number one defender of Barry Bonds, and hater of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag football, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the world capital of shrimp, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived for a while in Australia; I survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
