Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Roger Maris set a home-run record back in 1961 that many baseball fans thought would never be broken. However, when 1998 rolled around, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa both began racing to set the new record. MLB: Race for the Record includes interviews with the sons of Roger Maris and the teammates of both McGwire and Sosa. The entire season is recreated through clips, letting the viewer see firsthand how the fans went wild as they wondered which of these two great players would be the first to break the record.
