1961 New York Yankees
The Yankees completed what many call the best season in the history of baseball. Roger Maris broke Baby Ruth’s home run record, belting 61 total by season's end. The team hit a record-setting 240 home runs, and eight members of the squad were recognized as All-Stars. It only seemed fitting that a championship would cap such a miracle season for arguably the greatest franchise in sports history. (AP Photo)
