Summary

Summary

The official publication of Major League Baseball, here, in words and photos, are the incredible moments in the extraordinary race to eclipse baseball's most cherished record.

In their pursuit of the single-season homerun record set by Roger Maris in 1961, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa captured the hearts and imagination of baseball fans--and many non-fans--across the nation. Race for the Record brings it all back with a blow-by-blow account of the unbelievable 1998 season. Relive every historic homer with colorful descriptions of how and where they happened (and off of which pitcher)...and relive the emotional rollercoaster that these two lords of the long ball rode all season long as the pushed the record--and each other--to previously unimaginable heights. With more than 100 full-color photographs.
