Baseball season one for the ages [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998
Baseball season one for the ages Out OT Bounds TASQNSNYDER The 1998 Major League Baseball regular season couldn't have had a more dramatic ending if it were written by William Shakespeare. In a season that already witnessed Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa catch Roger Maris' home run record, the baseball world had no idea of the excitement that was to follow.

The New York Yankees put 114 wins in the American League record book, and the AL batting title would come down to a single at bat. All this drama and the playoffs hadn't even begun. With the baseball season approaching its final weekend, the question of who would be the home run king was still in doubt. Sosa had tied McGwire at 65 with only three games remaining and even took the home run lead for the second time this season the following night. But only 45 minutes later, Big Mac ...
