What is the record for the biggest increase in the number of wins from one MLB season to the next?

After the 2003 Detroit tigers had a 43 win-119 loss season i remember reading in the newspaper that if in 2004, they tied the record for single season improvement they still would not have a winnning record. I rember working back and calculating that if they tied that record they would have a .500 record (81-81) Therefore even though i didnt remember the actual number, by remebering all of those other facts, I can work backwords and figure out with a calculator that the record is 38.

How many home runs did Babe Ruth hit in one season?

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.
