On this day 18 years ago Mark McGwire hit his 62nd home run, passing Roger Maris at the time for most home runs in a single season. He would eventually hit 70 that season which was surprisingly only 4 more than Sammy Sosa. Mark McGwire (like basically the rest of them) ended up being involved in the whole steroid drama. But it still made for great baseball to watch.
