Goodness, that video right there is absolute gold. ‘Long Gone Summer’ will make its debut on ESPN on Sunday, June 14, and it truly can’t arrive any sooner. With the MLB campaign up in the air right now, baseball supporters everywhere need something exciting to bring them to life. This documentary will do just that.
As many out there remember, Sosa and McGwire went back and forth throughout the summer of 1998 to try and not only take down Roger Maris’s record of 61 home runs, but to finish on top of the other as well.
In what was one of the most iconic battles we’ve seen in the bigs, McGwire outmuscled Sosa, finishing the year with 70 blasts. Sosa had a historic season himself, belting 66 dingers.
This week, we’re looking back at the historic HR race to 62 between Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire.
