1998: Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals hits his record-setting 69th and 70th home runs in the last game of the season. McGwire had broken Roger Maris' single-season home run record earlier in the month, hitting his 62nd homer. His new mark of 70 would stand until Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants hit 73 in 2001.
