DATE: 9/8/1998 
GAME: Chicago Cubs @ St. Louis Cardinals
PLAYER: Mark McGwire, St. Louis Cardinals
COMPLEX SAYS: The home run race during the 1998 MLB season was becoming must-see TV. With both Sosa and McGwire attempting to break Roger Maris' single-season record, many fans became enthralled with finding out who would hold the distinct honor. The wait ended as McGwire hit homer number 62 barely over the left-field wall. Yeah, dude will be forever remembered as one of the most well-known steroid users, but you think he would've landed a job as the St. Louis hitting coach with out 'em? Us neither.
