Just when baseball was in danger of being demoted in the eyes of American sports fans, the grand old game stepped up to the plate in 1998 and re-earned its title as the National Pastime. In Home Run! The Year the Records Fell, baseball fans can celebrate the remarkable home run assault by the Cardinals' Mark McGwire and the Cubs' Sammy Sosa. This 144-page reflection of the 1998 long-ball battle -- compiled from the files of The Associated Press -- chronicles every one of McGwire's amazing 70 home runs as well as all of Sosa's 66 blasts. Accompanying the stores are AP photographs that recapture the magical moments of "the year the records fell." From Big Mac's dramatic grand slam on opening day to his record-breaking 62nd to hitting home run No. 70 in his final at-bat, the colorful details are all re-created in Home Run! From Sammy's inauspicious start to his explosive month of June to the home runs that led his Cubs to the playoffs, fans will recall the excitement generated by the Dominican Republic's most famous celebrity.
