Continuity mistake: In game 154 in Baltimore where Maris needs 2 home runs to tie Babe Ruth's record, he comes to bat in the 2nd inning. The scoreboard shows that the Yankees have scored 1 run in the inning. Later in the game when Wilhelm comes in to pitch, the scoreboard shows that no runs were scored by the Yankees in the 2nd inning.

Question: Mickey Mantle was on a home run streak that year and then got hurt. I am just curious to know, if Mickey Mantle had been the one to break the record, if there would be such an uproar over it.

Answer: Probably not. Mantle was loved by the fans and the sports writers, plus he was a good layer. Maris never really had a good season before, or after, so a lot of people did not think he deserved to be the one to break the record.
