Roll the calender back to 1961, a year in which the famed Mickey Mantle-Roger Maris tandem gave fans of the New York Yankees and major league baseball a thrill a day with their pursuit of Babe Ruth’s home run record.
But on a local, regional and state level, there was another historic moment in the sports world.
That was the inaugural year of what is now known as the LHSAA’s championship tournament in basketball.
