Sammy Sosa hugs Mark McGwire

Sosa and Mark McGwire rejuvenated baseball in the summer of 1998 with their race towards Roger Maris' single-season home run record. McGwire passed Maris' 61 first, but fittingly it was against Sosa's Cubs. Sosa was there to congratulate McGwire after hitting No. 62 on Sept. 8, 1998.
