Offers a game-by-game description of each of the record seventy home runs. Mar 10, 2015 Cam Phinney rated it it was amazing. This was a very good book. This is a non-fiction book about Mark McGwire's 70 home run season. In this book it tells about every home run. It tells the pitcher he hit it off, the inning, where it went in the stadium, the count, if any people were on base, the outs, and some pictures of the fans.

ISBN 13: 9780892046218. The venerable Sporting News, located in St. Louis, was around and flourishing when the Babe set the mark of 60 in 1927, and when Roger Maris broke it with 61 in 1961. No doubt the first of many celebratory books, this quickly produced "keepsake" album well represents the color and hyperbole of McGwire's peerless season and the press carnival that surrounded him. Sammy Sosa gets his mention, if not quite his due.

SIDELIGHTS: Among sportswriter Dave Kindred's volumes is a memoir of the ultimate golfing tour designed and played by Kindred and Tom Callahan. Both sports journalists were at a crossroads when they designed their own golf tour.

Mark E. Smith, with his face like an unmade bed (his words) and down-to-Earth advice about how to drink like a dockworker and tour a band (or how not to in the case of some of his ex-bandmates), is just really entertaining to read. If you're a fan of the Fall, I recommend checking it out.

Comments to eBook Celebrating 70: Mark Mcgwire's Historic Season

The 1998 baseball season was truly one of the most magic in recenty years, thanks in part to the "home run battle" between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. This book chronicles their achievement which I suspect will grow to legendary tones in the years to come. The sportmanship between these two hereos was evident all season long, and the book reflects that.
Perhaps it was fitting that McGwire should wind up in a city that is a true "baseball town," and one that could truly love and cherish his accomplishment. I remember watching the game on TV where McGwire broke Babe Ruth's home regular season home run record and even the Cub players stood and applauded him. This book remembers that.
It starts off with pictures of McGwire and a nice foreword by Jack Buck, the longtime St. Louis Cardinals' broadcaster. There's also a brief story about Maris and Ruth, the men McGwire chased for most of that long summer. And then the home runs. Each page is devoted to a description of each one; the date, the opposing pitcher, the final score and so on.
Reading through each page brought back all those wonderful memories of the 1998 season for me. This book is a wonderful treasure and keepsake to celebrate an incredible baseball season by one man.

Relive Mark McGwire's historic 1998 assault on the single season home run record with this magnificent book overflowing with full-color photos and amusing anecdotes. "Celebrating 70" charts the slugger's season, home run for home run, and features a bevy of information - complete with pictures - including the date of each long ball, the distance, and which pitcher was christened with the dubious distinction of yielding one of Big Mac's clouts! Along the way, you can read a brief summary for each game McGwire applied his trade. The pictures have been well chosen, conveying the emotion of each moment. The text matches the shear exuberance of the images, and Jack Buck's forward is simply splendid.

For the strongman from Pomona, California playing for the St. Louis Cardinals, the Summer of '98 was one long victory parade. A reminder of seasons past & a celebration of baseball future. He became a national hero & role model with class. He gave baseball back its luster. In this large, glossy, colorful homage to one fabulous boy of summer - the team of writers, photographers, designers & editors has given us a memorable, collectible, hit-by-hit, play-by-play story of a modern grand adventure. What a gift!

For anyone who followed Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa battling it out during this extraordinary summer, this book brings back all the excitement. From the introduction by Jack Buck to the coverage of each individual home run, this book is full of gorgeous pictures and exceptional writing. This was a summer I'll never forget and this book will always be a treasure to me. There are already several books out there on this subject but this is the only one produced in St. Louis by the reporters who followed the story closest. As Jack Buck would say---"That's a winner!"
