Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire

Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire rejuvenated baseball in the summer of 1998 with their race towards Roger Maris' single-season home run record. McGwire hit his 62nd homerun against Sosa's Cubs, however, both players are widely suspected to have been using performance enhancing drugs at the time, casting a pall over the legitimacy of McGwire's feat.
