Roger Maris Hits 61 Home Runs
The First Super Bowl
The Houston Astrodome


"Space-age baseball - indoors!"
--Houston Astrodome, 1965


sports tidbits
*61 in '61!....In 1961, Roger Maris hit 61 home runs, breaking Babe Ruth's record of 60 home runs set in 1927.

*The Houston Astrodome opened in 1965. In April of that year, it was the site of the very first indoor baseball game. When the natural grass died, it was replaced by the first Astroturf in 1966.

*The first Super Bowl was played in 1967. At the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the AFL and NFL champions faced each other in front of 61,946 fans. The Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 35 to 10.

*Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers joined the Chicago Bears in 1965. Their friendship broke racial barriers and inspired everyone who knew them. In the fall of 1969, Piccolo was diagnosed with cancer. Despite chemotherapy and several surgeries, he passed away in June 1970. In an eloquent acceptance speech, Sayers dedicated his Most Courageous Player Award to Piccolo. In 1971, the movie Brian's Song brought their story to the world.

*In the 1960s, the 500 Home Runs Club welcomed Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle, Eddie Matthews, Willie Mays and Ted Williams.
