The most home runs Babe Ruth ever hit in one season is 60, in 1927. This stood as the single-season home run record until Roger Maris hit 61 in 1961, although many fans discounted Maris' record because the regular season in 1961 was longer than in Ruth's day, 162 games instead of 154.
Maris' record was broken in 1998 by Mark McGwire, who hit 70 homers during that season. McGwire's record was soon broken by Barry Bonds, who hit 73 in 2001. That record still stands in 2010. Both McGwire and Bonds have since been associated with Baseball's steroids scandal, leading many to discount their records as well.
