In years to come 1998 will be remembered as one of the finest in the history of baseball. Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa slugged their way into the record books, and David Wells pitched a perfect game. Roger "The Rocket" Clemens reached the giddy heights of the 3,000 plateau. Cal took a day off. And then there were the Yankees. Fittingly, it was the Bronx Bombers who penciled in the final emphatic exclamation point of the season, by sweeping the San Diego Padres in four games. A season that saw them brush aside all opposition while on their way to 125 wins would have been incomplete without this victory. The official Major League Baseball video recaps the regular season of the Padres and Yanks, before following them through the playoffs, and then on to the World Series. The inspired San Diego team, led admirably by the ageless yet priceless Tony Gwynn, Kevin Brown, and Wally Joyner, encountered a Yankee team too experienced and too deep, from wily veterans like David Cone and Paul O'Neil to brilliant youngsters like Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera. The 1998 Yankees were a team on a mission from start to finish, a feeling epitomized in the messiah-like stature of Joe Torre, who himself said that getting to the final hurdle simply wasn't good enough were they to come away empty-handed. In a fitting testament to professionalism and team unity, the Yankees established themselves in 1998 as perhaps the greatest team in any sport, ever. Exclusive interviews, behind-the-scenes footage (never seen before on TV), and "wired for sound" players from every game make this video a must for any baseball fan. --Jeremy Storey
