For the decade covering the nineties and the early part of this past decade the trio were part one of the most inglorious eras in baseball’s history as they laid siege to the single-season home run record . The figure of sixty-one home runs first held by Roger Maris who hit 61 home runs for the New York Yankees during the 1961 season is still looked upon and revered as the legitimate record in baseball history . though it was surpassed by Bonds in 2001 with seventy-three home runs. The mark is currently recognized statisticians for MLB , Hall of Fame and Elias Stats Bureau . Barry Bonds also holds the record for career home runs (763) surpassing the total of Hank Aaron , a Hall of Fame inductee . AP Photo / Emmanuel Ortega
