20 Years Ago Today, Mark McGwire Hit Number 62

We all remember where we were on this day in 1998 when Mark McGwire hit his 62nd home run of the season, breaking the record set my Roger Maris in 1961. 

The family was in attendance at Busch Stadium that night.  The Cardinals were playing the Cubs, so Sammy Sosa who was chasing McGwire all year and ended up with 66 homers that season, was able to congratulate Mark.  

McGwire went on to hit 70 home runs that year. 

Joe Buck's call of the home run was as memorable as the home run itself.
