Add An Asterisk (MM #3492)

"The Maison with Kevin nation that was a big sports fan growing up in a kid now was used to hear about an asterik or an asterisk as Some people prefer being added to a sports record when there were changes. There was always an asterisk next to the Home Run records because at first Rodger marris had more games to get 61 home runs than Babe Ruth did to get his sixty and then of course in these steroid off there were astrix added to home run records by Bobby bonds and Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa have a feeling that 2020 is a year is going to be our year of the asterik where everything has an asterik attached to it. I was thinking about sports records this year where you've at home run leaders in baseball while they only had like, you know a quarter of the games they would normally play so naturally wouldn't have as big a numbers. It's kind of weird how everything we have an asterisk next to it, especially when you're talking about people going into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or the Nascar Hall of Fame at this point. They don't know if they're going to be inducted in 2021 or 2022 and we'll those classes be combined and how will it work? I'll try to figure it out right now put a big old a Street next to everything.

"mcgwire" Discussed on Randy Baumann and the DVE Morning Show

"One homers and twenty two games like he was on fire because at the beginning remember case it was. Griffey was in the mix, and then all of a sudden, and then all of a sudden comes out of nowhere, but one thing I didn't. I don't I didn't remember about that. Season was that the table was set from ninety seven, because mcgwire hit fifty eight Knox in in in ninety seven, so right from the jump, the pressure was there the stage was set, and then he hits sixty one at home with the mayor's family there on his dad's sixty first birthday like that is just that's the stuff of Legend I. Mean that whole season was just insane. No you're right bill. You're right because he hit that fifty eight year before you right coming into like. Maybe he's the guy that could beat mayors and yeah for him. That was cool part of the story when he said he had sixty one on his dad sixty first birthday I was like you know that you know the universe knows I don't know there's the amazing stuff and and like just. You're right, but even the social stuff 'cause. It was great for me to like like I said I had that front row seat like I played against Sosa mcgwire there in my decision so like when we were when we went to Wrigley I know a few those hit against the rats because we were just throwing poop soup up, there frigate like like. We're GONNA. We're GONNA. Throw this thing on Jose. Debate is going to throw this in their eighty seven with no sink. See how far you can hit us, so it's a real quick like. But just like Waylon Avenue. I. Like I watch I watch. Those are just crushing balls to. And then when he had that, we was that twenty one bombs at twenty two days ridiculous like it was just it was next level, but to watch them go back and forth. That was cool like when when Maguire got sixty Sosa was at fifty eight and the next thing you know Sosa would. That was tied sixty two. It was it was unbelievable. Unbelievable history keys. Case this the steroid element change your remembrance of it at all. It doesn't appear to bother Sammy Sosa based on what he said last night and A. Choir is been sort of. He's had a difficult time I think expressing what he feels about it, but it in retrospect. Feeling about it now that you did then. No. I don't as a matter of fact I think now that I'm older and I. Look back and really appreciate it. I appreciate it more. I Don I I have so many mixed emotions about the steroid stuff. Just because you know I was I was in that earn and You know whatever you know, I am not. Everyone was doing steroids like you know I know those guys. Are you know obviously in the mix of that all that stuff, but I I wanna tell you this i. don't even know what it just means. Anything but I played with a bunch of kids who are on steroids and they were worse. They were. Like. Get off that you need to get off that age the that aero as quick as possible because you're terrible, you better last year. How about how how about how Sosa? Looks like his appearance I mean I just see in the footage him back in the day. You know he's this young good looking guy who's just hitting jacks all over the place. And now he looks like he owns a vampire restaurant I. Got The strangest. Look going on I don't know what that is. You look a little lighter a little different. They definitely do little different but yeah I would seen socio years..

"All the dunk. All the. But now you're all that you want becomes a lot more. Lot more. Jimmy Stewart. Athletic! Tables have turned. The tables have turned you. Off Man. Like. If. The University of Michigan, not celebrating you guys. The Way He deserves truly is a tragedy and Sammy Sosa. Dredges up some of those feelings in another thing I wanNA talk to you. As we conclude this wonderful run that we've had spending time with all of you on Sunday Nights, and also listening to the podcast last dance episode, The two part Lance documentary the be waters, helping Bruce Lee and now long gone summer, celebrating Sosa mcgwire, and and you take zoom out, you look at it macro. You've got names Michael Jordan and Bruce Lee and Lance Armstrong Sammy Sosa Mark mcgwire, and it really makes you think about how impactful sports is on everyone's lives, but how these men are such a big. Big Part of our lives as sports, fans more so than authors, educators and everything, and with all the unrest. We have right now. You really start to feel how important and influential sports is on pop culture, and these films, and just the stories of these people has sort of done that for us as well. Even the fact that we were just discussing the fat five did so much more than turn on people of my age to the game of basketball, but so much more hip, hop, culture, and the the shorts, and the look in the field, and the attitude and the socks and I wonder I want to ask you as someone who is a student notches of basketball in all sports and pop culture, but as a species and cultures a whole. How important and why do think sports has such an impact on culture? Because it's the one place that a billionaire. May Be in the Bilden with somebody that makes forty thousand dollars even as unemployed. It becomes the most unique melting pot that we value entertainment in the United States. We pay more for it than we do. Education. The list goes on and on about services that could use the money, but we want to be entertained. And so. As as a basketball player and as league. To continue to not only uplift AH game. But also during this time of unrest, it reminded me Jacoby. When George Floyd tragically got murdered. There weren't any sports. And it forced us to sit down and really evaluate. Minutes of would. Do you think about race relations in your country in the world and in your household? How a lot of times people over fifty fifty five years old saw different America than the young people as you mentioned that love rap music have seen. And so while everybody's in the same building rooting for the same team. I think more so music it. Particular rap has brought. Urban America to the suburbs enforced. White kids to be loving the PFAFF five and then wearing baggy shorts. Wearing black shoes, black socks and Harare cheese and listening to their favorite rap artists. That's what happens. When you combine sports and Entertainment In music and the impact on society well, Joan that was very well put I. WanNa. Thank you for joining me.

'Long Gone Summer' Documentary Revisits Controversial 1998 Home Run Chase

"Are joined by the director of long gone. Summer AJ SCHMUCK AJ. Congratulations loved watching that film. What does it feel like to have the film finally be seen by the world. I mean it's crazy. It's a been a long journey to get to this point, and it feels like a total miracle to have finished. With the pandemic and working separately with all my team so finally being able to get the film done and get it's ESPN. Feels like a huge accomplishment. Why did you decide to start the dock with the actual baseball's that mark mcgwire hit. Well is in part because we. When we met Todd McFarlane The Great Comic Book Artist Entrepreneur Who who bought all the balls or a bunch of balls including at number seventy. I just love the way he talked about the home run, and how it is something that really connects baseball fans to the game in a way that you don't get in any other sports so as soon as we like walked out of of interviewing him, I I turned to my producer, and said you know that's the beginning of the film. Is Him talking about what the home run in baseball means and how it connects fans, drinks have direct contact between Maguire's bat, and and the person who catches it. So that was that was great also has sort of the other. Bonus. Positive thing of reminding you that someone paid more than three million dollars. Baseball that's how big this was That's how much this took over the country that someone would would go to that extent. To own that ball. Having when watching that scene in Rhode. explained. HOW MICHAEL JORDAN HITS! A shot wins the championship. They go and bring him the basketball, and if if a quarterback breaks a record with the past, bring him the football, but with the home run. You literally hit into the stands, and you never see it again and it was sort of a way that the fan can take home a piece of the game in baseball. They can't other any other way. Way that happens with the home run, but then you did you hear him sort of articulate this, and then the question is asked how much you pay for it. It was just so much money that I wanted to know. How does this? How much are they paying people that bitter comic book illustrators, nowadays like what is the going rate for commentator Peter? How can this man afford this multimillion dollar baseball? Spun was very successful, but yeah I think. He spent basically every penny he owned and you know I I think in part. He did it because he he wanted to get into the business of making action figures for for sports. And and that happens I, mean he basically that was his way of getting everyone's attention in saying. Hey, I'm serious I. Care About Sports Let me make action figures, and and he did I think it was not only something that he wanted to do one thing that didn't make the film which I I tried to find a way to put it in, but he talked about how. His brothers are all baseball fans, one of the key excitement for him in getting the balls with just to be able to say I've got the baseball. As like well. You got three million dollars for that God. Bless Ya. I know that's right. The kid sweet swinging lefty King Griffey Junior, one of my favorite players growing up as Wa. Carry a bet to this day. was more of a factor. With Sosa mcgwire that people actually a realize. Can you acknowledge how his performance affected them? Certainly I mean one of the crazy things I think about that. Season was that people really went into it from spring training, thinking that either Maguire or junior were gonNA. Make this record. Both of them at hit and high fifties the year before this was an expansion year. Everyone just thought like this is GonNa happen went into the season, thinking that Griffey was was in it. You know right I think if you even remember the Griffey was in it. You forget that he was in it until late August when he had kind of a long slump I think he only hit one one home run and like twenty games and may still hits. Hyphen! which is a tremendous season that gets overlooked by what happened with mcgwire and Sosa, but certainly yeah I mean congruency. Junior had an amazing year that year and. It was in a in addition to to all the stuff. We remember of Sosa and mcgwire. He was. He was hitting the ball longer. In Maguire was sort of famously one of the bash brothers, and he had a great career while he was in Oakland with the athletes and Sammy Sosa wasn't as celebrated as a baseball player, and he said something in the film that really hit accord me, said quote ahead had to continue hitting. Because if not, they're not going to mention me. Why did you include that emphasized that and what that means you from Sami? I thought it was great. It Sammy acknowledged that he wanted to the respect. He thought he deserved, and he does that a few times I think in the film and I mean that's sort of a lighthearted way of like saying like. I turned on sports center at night and if I don't hit a home run like they're not gonNA mentioned. He wanted to be mentioned. He wanted to be acknowledged and I think that one of the things I hope that the film does Sami. Wasn't that well known outside of Chicago before ninety eight, but. That's in part because the comes weren't very good, but the Sammy was was a great player for the cubs. A thirty thirty guy I thirty thirty guy ever in cubs history. He was a top home run hitter in the National League for years. I was one year where he was on track to get close to the record. But was injured in in August so You know was a goal to sort of illuminate. The fact that Sami wasn't just somebody who like. Jumped out of nowhere in June of Nineteen Ninety eight that he meant something in Chicago before that. Implant in Chicago, the weather can be a factor. Do you believe it play as much of a factor as Sammy Sosa states. I mean all I can tell you that. We were there in May of last year to shoot the Saint Louis Chicago series in their. Earliest! May and it's snowed one morning. And I was just like. I grew up in southern Illinois outside the St, Louis and I love Chicago. Chicago is great, but I was just like hell though. Away being at the game it was cold. It was rainy and it was just like damn out. This is football. Weather's that I don't know but yeah. No. I definitely know He. He I believe in when he says he's. He was a hitter that did better when it got warm. Not that good of a hitter in the cold. Certainly, see see that that would be the case. Which I think is also in the film. You'll see you know one of the things that makes a Kerry Wood's twenty strikeout game. All the more impressive is that he's. He's doing it on one of those days, and the rain is coming down east going through like You know thirteen fourteen fifteen strikeouts that day, so? Yeah! It's whether in and regularly I think is probably no joke. With all of what's happening in our society in the world, not just in our country today we kind of have to look at things in stories in history, and currently through the filter of race. And how do you think race played a role in this particular story of mcgwire and Sosa and that summer? I think that people wanted to feel good about the fact that they liked this battle between these two guys who were from different cultures different countries. And different races. That probably made people want pat themselves on the back for feelings so good about it I think in part there still memories of what had happened to Hank Aaron and sort of the ugliness when he was. Setting the all time home run record. So people felt like. Wow, look at how far we've come to celebrate and get excited about the fact that this could be. A champion of homerun record that was held by either of these two guys. There's a somewhat famous. Cartoon! Where the two of them are depicted with their bats wall has been broken in the wall, says racist. You know like that. The two of them had finally solved this problem. They beaten it. And I think. It's just a you know. It's one of those times when. People have wanted to. Congratulate themselves for reaching a certain. Threshold and clearly all of those congratulations were way premature. And we're still. We're still fighting for it. I hope that the people. Look at this though as a story of these two champions, and can get some excitement out of the fact that they did come from different backgrounds, and they have very different stores,

"Cardinals mark McGwire and the Chicago Cubs in the sos and bark on a chase of one of the game's most hallowed records igniting the passion and imagination of fans and non fans everywhere long god summer premieres this Sunday June fourteenth at nine eastern on ESPN and ESPN two the film will be available to stream on ESPN plus following the debut for all the latest headlines information tune the SportsCenter on ESPN radio all throughout the day John Amaechi played many years in the NBA it is one of the least interesting things about him we enjoyed talking to him about all sorts of things so let's begin John and thank you for joining us what do you do with the news that the NFL is now ready to commit two hundred fifty million dollars over the next ten years to social causes so I'm happy that they're going to spend some money I think spending money in lieu of actually changing is is pretty rich I mean how could you have any respectable for Colin Kapernick and and embrace this message whole heartedly would be my take you know what what I'm what I'm truly magical Negro George Floyd must be in order for the NFL to suddenly change on a dime like that none of the other deaths that happen on a daily weekly basis move them not not fi dignified protest of one of their own no no no that course constructive dismissal but but somehow this is that moment it makes absolutely no sense and it's a disgraceful disgraceful show to me again send that money to it right now the older right because this and take no credit for it because they don't deserve any and so what do you do with for example same thing with NASCAR and finally listening to their one a black driver and saying okay now we'll get rid of the Confederate flag this is nothing to do with that one but driver they could give a damn about him this is to do with a sensitivity in the public at large and the scrutiny from from television the problem when it finally gets back on television this is I mean when we were when we reward people for doing something that was known to be terrible in the nineteen hundreds for for for continuing that for another century I mean we we just we've known that that's what that flag stands for symbolism in America is deeply important it's deeply important in the United Kingdom to but we've known that this is a flag that it's not about anything but a traitorous group and that's a British person saying that it would be like having a British flag on your thing is that the one that would be less offensive now major you questioning the timing and sincerity on all of this is that what is that what I sense you're doing here I think you picking up what I'm putting down and listen I will take it that good courses are aided by the guilt of rich white men but what I will not have is that their misdeeds that consistent and ongoing misdeeds are somehow a radic hated by this one act of largesse I still dont is raising a finger in here like Joe name if I noticed you through sincerity in there with timing and you didn't just support your denture listening to the our needs why were you well why were you upset at economic adviser Larry Kudlow what is it that he said that bothered you recent I don't know how or when was I upset with Larry Kudlow I'm I thought that I saw on Twitter that you were bothered to with the idea that he had said that there is no systemic race the United States oh no I'm sorry minding yeah you know what the problem is I have taken I have taken to electively dropping the names of people I hate out of my brain I just think they shouldn't occupy my hard drive and so I completely put but now you said I can see his ridiculous frame in a bad suit listen the idea of why are we asking people like that about important questions I was on a panel the other day on TV here in the U. K. what they were asking about the two metre distance and we should we keep the ticket and it's like one the person next to me was a television personality the person on the other side was just some bloke and and it's like are you looking public health and even I think this is a conversation we should lead to the scientists so the fact that he thinks he can talk about systemic racism and deny it a quick you know unequivocally when it spits out some specific been studied for years and years and this is one of those things that is more roundly accepted them climate change it's just ridiculous the boldness of it to dismiss a systemic prejudice on the basis of what you would prefer to be true and what is a more politically correct line for that particular individual disgusting where do you think we're gonna be in six months John you know what I I look back I'll look back on all my pontificating over the years and the number of times that I've sat with people talking about how with the question so does this mean everything's going to change in my answer over the years I can make a tape of it is just I hope so I hope so I hope so but every time I listen to that I hope so it's a little bit less sure and it's never been less fuel than right now I think there will be some some assistance because people at the NFL and others will pay to assuage the guilt knowing that it gives them some runway to continue to be truly terrible and so maybe in the short term some organizations some some funds will be enhanced but will systemic racism change no I'm surprised to hear you say that you're less hopeful now that you've been because this feels like a more hopeful time like you're just not buying that that it can indoor only the kind of changes are quiet people are very quick to talk about ally ship and and and and that's what's required right ally ship it's not just black people who need to fortify themselves and vote and whatever else that these are important elements but we need ally ship but people think ally ship is is I don't know reading a James Baldwin book but that's that's not it educating yourself the number of people down the number of people this week who I've been talking to on television and they've been saying things like I never realized that white people cross the street when you walk towards them I can't believe it and I am so saddened and exhausted by this because it's not that they're racist because of that but what it means is they have not have the information they require to be an ally and some of these people of fifty and sixty years old so they have not in the course of fifty or sixty years in a city as diverse as London ever once had an instance where they've created a connection with a black person that's strong enough to know this information and that is devastating so while I think lots of people lots of allies are learning things about that black and brown brothers who are being differentially treated I am not sure that many people are going to be willing to enjoy that for much longer and they just kind of hope to the news cycle move on as you've made the television rounds is there any one point or any group of points that you've been insistent on making because you need people to hear it yeah I've been telling people it's not enough to not to be racist it's not enough to not be racist you have to be anti racist and that is not a controversial position to be against the **** party is not a controversial position to be against people who believe that black people are less than human is not a controversial position and I think that is the minimum we should expect in order to be civilized we can call ourselves civilized that's the one part the second part is that what you can do as you decide to go on to racist you most people don't have and I think I said this last time this massive in front of the whole world but what they can do is they can decide that maybe the.

Joseph Maguire, Acting DNI, Faced Congress after whistleblower report

"Yuvan of it to Benjamin Sunland if you the people who become household names of the impeachment drama has played out with the house vote now behind us we wanted to catch up with another central character from the very beginning a man who occupies at least for the moment one of the most critical perches in the US government our story begins late on Friday the thirteenth of September which is when Adam Schiff chairman of the house intelligence committee released a cryptic letter we're gonna let our co host Mary Louise Kelley pick it up from here the letter runs four pages on official stationery the big CEO of the intelligence committee on top it is signed sincerely Adam B. Schiff it is addressed to this guy now here I am sitting before you as the acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire that's him testifying before Congress end of September he had received chefs letter which contained very few details but which marked the first public mention of the whistle blower complaint the letter accused McGuire of improperly withholding that complaint from Congress and subpoenaed him to testify now we heard McGuire say there he's the acting director of national intelligence and talk about timing threat to acquire what was your first day on the job my first day on the job was Friday the sixteenth of August and I think I set a new record in the administration for the anticipated before yeah yeah yeah that you had a heck of a first week didn't have much going for the Sir the questions there from New York Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney driving home the point that McGwire took over the job of running U. S. intelligence just four days after the whistle blower a US intelligence official filed the complaint McGuire suggested this was not the way he did version the job going either way Sir if I may my life would have been a heck of a lot simpler without becoming the most famous man in the United don't have settled debatable whether Joseph acquire was then or now the most famous man in the United States but if it felt that way it speaks to the extraordinarily awkward position the acting di and I found himself in caught between a White House looking for loyalty and lawmakers looking for answers since his appearance before the house intelligence committee McGuire has kept an exceedingly low profile no interviews we asked for one we're gonna spend these next minutes looking closely at the DNR job whether it matters that we are now past four months and counting with an acting director at the home the longest period without a Senate confirmed permanent leader of US intelligence since the job was created fifteen years ago today I'm asking Congress to create the position of the national intelligence director George W. bush in the White House rose garden two thousand four over in Congress they were listening we were breaking for the August recess and not I decided to call our committee back into session and we began the hearings Republicans Susan Collins of Maine she chaired the Senate governmental affairs committee I felt a sense of urgency because this was already two thousand for the terrorists attacks had happened on nine eleven two thousand one and the nine eleven commission had just released its final report it zoomed in on a failure to connect the dots that the CIA the FBI and others weren't sharing what they knew the report had ideas for how to prevent anything like nine eleven from ever happening again the central crowning recommendation a new position someone who could force intelligence agencies to talk to each other so Collins and Joe Lieberman then the committee's top Democrat got to work I remember you couldn't figure out what you were going to call this position to start with it was the need for a little while I was going to say and for awhile it was the Ned and I remember Joe Lieberman saying we can't call it the no that sounds too much like the net yeah it has to be the D. N. I. doesn't sound in power exactly what to call it was the least of their problems senator Collins told me the turf battles were in once it was vehemently opposed by not only the CIA but particularly the secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld because his department was going to lose considerable power over the intelligence community's budget which was funneled through the department of defense but as you heard his boss President Bush was on board and in December two thousand four Congress passed the most sweeping intelligence overhaul in nearly sixty years by the following February bush was announcing his pick for the nation's first director of national intelligence vesting these are stories in a single official who reports directly to me will make our intelligence efforts better coordinated more efficient and more effective the director of the CIA will report to John John was John Negroponte at the time he was US ambassador to Iraq I tracked him down here in Washington this week and asked about that last bit of the president's remarks that the head of the CIA would report to him that's correct there were gathering no it did but you know it it it took some socializing and some explain simply socialite water like a devoted some water had to go under the bridge in the fifteen years that that water's been flowing under the bridge the office of the D. N. I. has expanded to a staff of thousands the exact numbers classified as we can quarters building is gone up in northern Virginia so has all this worked has having India nine made us safer again the sponsor of the original legislation senator Collins I do believe that it has been successful but it's not perfect I I do hear a criticism bet they demand nice office has grown too big too bureaucratic so I'm not saying that we got it perfect leave right but compared to where we were we have come and the norm this way I heard a similar view from Mike moral who was among those who required some socializing two years Negroponte's word moral serve more than thirty years at the CIA he was president bush's briefer on nine eleven and ended up the agency's deputy director moral opposed creating video and I thought the more obvious solution was to bulk up the authorities of the head of the CIA botch I evolved over time significantly so by the time I left government in two thousand thirteen the last week that I was deputy director I actually got in my car and drove to Capitol Hill and met with senator Collins and senator Lieberman it actually thank them so I was I started out in one place and I ended up in a completely different place pressed as to why morale who now hosts the intelligence matters podcast pointed to his former gang delivering the president's daily brief in the old days he says it was pretty much only CIA material that made the cut whereas now with a D. and I overseeing everything the president's likely to hear from shore the CIA but also the state department's intelligence branch or the Pentagon's defense intelligence agency the deer so when CIA wrote a piece say on a China issue and de I a had a different view it would actually say at the bottom of the page de I a has a different view here it is here's why they have a different view and here Mister president is why this matters to you this difference matters to you so and and I think that makes for better intelligence support for the president John Negroponte the original GNI has mixed feelings about the job he once held here we are fifteen years later mmhm as an experiment has it worked I would say it hasn't failed I'm not sure it's worked fully I think it's still a work in progress on the positive side ambassador Negroponte points to changes he helped put in motion such as integrating the F. B. I. more closely into the broader intelligence community then he pauses and adds mistakes still get made obviously we see that from the inspector general's report just now with respect Carter page and all that I was an egregious seems to have been an egregious mistake of some kind which shows that those problems of coordination don't just go away because you say they should the reference there to the DOJ inspector general who just last week delivered a report documenting all kinds of errors in the F. B. I.'s application to surveil one time trump campaign aide Carter page now can we draw a direct line between the D. and I roll and the F. B. I. **** ups know what is fact is last week so president trump tweeting the FBI is quote badly broken which brings us back up to this moment the president attacking what he has come to call the deep state the house voting to impeach the president following an inquiry originally put in motion by a US intelligence community whistle blower the usual array of national security threats on the radar from Iran to China to North Korea and no sign of a nomination for the top job in US intelligence it is definitely a problem that I had the president has not nominated a permanent Senate confirmed Deanna Republican senator Susan Collins if the people in the intelligence community do not know whether the acting D. N. night is going to be there next week they are going to be less responsive to his concerns to his directives and bad is a problem so I would urge the president to make a choice my put her argument to someone with firsthand experience Michael moral can I was acting director of CIA twice so I know what I'm talking about here you don't feel as empowered as you would if you are Senate confirmed because you know you're not gonna be there that long just how awkward position then does Joseph McGuire find himself in four months and four days after being named acting director of national intelligence world points out that requires a navy Vice Admiral thirty six years in uniform this is a guy has actually been shot at right in combat this is a guy who's who's injured a lot but I think what he's learning is that the political fire is often more challenging than actual weapons fire navigating impeachment era Donald Trump dominated Washington in other words it's a different game morale as I hope he's learning

"In our previous previous episode. Mark and Sammy duked it out during a day game at Wrigley Field that afternoon. Sammy struck first knocking one out of the Ballpark to seize is the season leave then as if some Sosa Stardust rubbed off on him McGuire answered the call crushing not one but two huge blasts to slingshot himself back on top now in the final month of the nineteen ninety eight regular season our sluggers swinging for the fences running neck and neck the race to become the single season home run came along the way they've changed each other and now they just might change baseball history and America's America's relationship with professional sports. This is the final episode of McGuire versus Sosa Broken records. It's August Twenty Third Nineteen Ninety eight at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Sammy Sosa weights in the on Deck Circle for the eighth inning to begin. He's due up first against the Houston Astros Jose Lima and Sammy's looking forward to it three innings. He cranked a bomb off of Lima for His fiftieth home homerun of the season even with that home run though staying upbeat is more difficult than it's been all season. Thanks to mark mcgwire's big fat mouth. Sammy loves mark really he does but what was he thinking. Everybody uses the same stuff I use. Thanks to McGuire now. Sammy's under steroid suspicion as well so cid knows he's not catching as much heat as big. Mac Act these half a foot shorter and fifty pounds lighter. He's a smaller target. Literally Still Sosa knows he has added thirty five pounds impure muscles since coming into the league with his shirt off. Sosa looks like a powerlifter not an outfielder really. He used to be proud of it now. It's it's a problem he'd love to hide at his pre-game press conference. A reporter dared to ask him point blank if he was on the juice for just a split second rage flashed Sammy's is the gathered media wondered if they finally found the crack in the dominicans ever cheerful facade but Sosa recovered nearly instantaneously shaking his head and grinning as he replied I only take the flintstones vitamins everyday flintstones. He thinks to himself they can accuse me of whatever they want. I survived losing my father at seven years old and had to work three three jobs to feed my family so SA- battled his way through multiple big-league organizations to get to this point with the cubs so no questions don't scare Sammy Sosa back at Wrigley the home plate umpire signals the beginning of the inning. Sammy puts on his helmet mm-hmm and thinks all right. I've got a playoff berth to clinch a team to lead a city to inspire. Maybe even a record to set. He smiles wide lied for all of his teammates to see then he steps on the Field Sa- head high fifty one. It's August Twenty Ninth Nine Hundred Ninety eight at Busch Stadium in Saint Louis. The cardinals finals are hosting the Atlanta Braves. It's a meaningless game for the cards. They're out of the playoff race but it doesn't sound meaningless and the pact upper decks the the nearly forty eight thousand fans filling the ballpark are here for one reason and one reason only to see if Mark Maguire bashes homerun number fifty five mark lumbers into the on-deck circle for a few warmup swings right now. He's just grateful to be playing ball a week ago ago. When his androstenedione story broke he expected his whole world to implode just game over dude but then the strangest thing happened happened nothing. Nobody seemed to care every game still sold out. Fan still chanted his name. His teammates didn't make a peep. Neither did the Commissioner's office turns out Americans. Love home runs more than they hate an accused cheater often round number two which brings up you know who McGuire treks up to the batter's box with every plotting step the anticipation in the stadium ratchets higher will he do it. How far WILCO will he hit two today tonight. Mark Son Matthew serves as the cardinals batboy a role. He'll keep for the rest of the season per maguire's request mark glances over at his young son before the at Bat. Matthew Stares back in awe. Mark recognizes the look immediately. It's how he used to look look at his own debt after his divorce almost a decade ago now mark worry that Matt would never look at him that way again that their bond was forever ver- broken turns out all needed to do to capture his sons attention was mesmerized the entire nation no big deal he he tells himself okay mark time to focus. He then digs into the batter's box tonight. He's facing Tom. Glavin one of the most devilishly unhittable pitchers in all of baseball glavin gets to work on Maguire and quickly. They've battled to a full count. Glavin pitched him tough but mark senses the crafty lefty would rather walk him then risk serving up a juicy pitch over the plate. Maguire tells himself don't swing take the walk help. help the team ball four nuit. Mark thinks except strike three Maguire's out. He can't believe it. The pitch was a foot away from the plate. He spins to face the rookie umpire and gives him a piece of his mind. Usually this is an instant injection. You just can't turn around too loudly arguing balls and strikes no matter who you are but instead of tossing him the young simply steps steps back from the angry giant. That's when cardinals manager. Tony Larussa dashes out from the DUGOUT. This is sort of a baseball ritual. It's Larusso Russo who will argue the call and get ejected on Maguire's behalf so his star can stay in the game which is exactly what happens. Larussa gets tossed and leads McGuire higher by the arm back to the dugout except now instead of sticking to the script McGuire Yanks free from his managers are takes his bat and slams it in the dirt are to draw a line exactly where the pitch came in. Mark's blood is boiling over. He's never been so angry in all of his life life and it terrifies him. No single pitch should cause him to a rupp like this and yet mount. McGuire is now officially a volcano. He can only see a burning fiery red. He hears his voice swearing feels spittle flying from his yelling mouth but it's not him mm-hmm. He has no control. It's like he's possessed. Finally the trump just can't tolerate any more of this. Mark can't believe it. A rookie up just tossed him in the first inning in the middle of the home run chase. This loss game could cost him the record he then chucks his helmet as hard as he can in the stands fans are just as livid generally speaking cardinals fans have have a reputation for being respectful but now they're tossing garbage on the field. The stadium is on the verge of a riot. It almost feels like like the strike all over again only worse. The two teams flee the field to take cover so the UMPIRES finally after the Stadium Stadium. PA announcer calls for calm the crowd comes to their senses or maybe they just ran out of things to throw it takes the ground screw over ten minutes to clean up the entire field before play can resume as for mark he hits the showers finally cooling down but he's haunted by an image wjr as he angrily stomped off the diamond he saw matthew cowering in the dugout. His face ghost white scared to death by the unruly fans scared to to death by the raining debris but most of all scared to death of his raging father mark. Let's the water rinse the sweat off his face and and thinks to himself. was that really me. Is this really worth it. And why is it sammy feeling any of this. August thirty first nineteen ninety eight the cubs are hosting the reds at Wrigley Sammy crack number fifty four yesterday in Colorado. She's ready to keep rolling today right and the thirty-seven thousand some odd vans got exactly what they came for. He's got fifty five number fifty five. Sammy polls even with McGuire even better at least Sammy's opinion the cubs just put together back to back wins. Sammy Hits Two more in the next four games CBS each one a cubby win. Chicago's winning streak now sits at six his home run tally is at fifty seven. There's only one small well not at small at all one six foot five inch redwood of a roadblock between Sammy and the record the fifty six new McGuire bashes to against against the marlins on September first then puts on a repeat performance the next day the Marlins fans are left so in awe that they demand he come out. Take a curtain call on the road and just like that marks at fifty nine big. Mac is dialed all the way back in coming up next on Sportscenter Ed Mark Maguire muscles closer to the home run record while slamming. Sammy tries to keep face the nation baseball fans and non fans alike begins to lose its collective mind regularly scheduled. TV program is interrupted to show mcgwire and Sosa at-bats like their moon landings they appear on the cover of Time magazine dominate the front page of every newspaper Homerun Mania has taken over America on September a fifth mcgwire and Sosa both go yard in their respective games. Big Mac now stands at sixty the same magical number or that. Babe Ruth made famous over seventy years ago. Maguire is one away from tying Roger Marris's all-time record and Sosa. He's nipping at Maguire's heels.

"Second Nineteen Ninety eight at three rivers stadium in Pittsburgh Mark Maguire Saint Louis Cardinals are in town and down to their last at bat against the pirates as Maguire looks on from the dugout teammate dribbles routine groundout to end the game. The pirates demolished cards fourteen to four another disappointing walks. Saint Louis is now five games under five hundred so the playoffs aren't even a consideration but mark knows that tonight's game will somehow be spun as a success because big. Mac crushed his fifty second home run of the year and right now. That's all okay anyone in baseball seems to care about his homerun rivalry with Sammy Sosa and their race to beat Roger Marris's record big. Mac Rises arises from the bench and starts the long walk back to the locker room. He's exhausted. He's also sick of losing and he's even more sick of the questions he keeps facing the four hundred seventy seven foot smash felt good no doubt he's now ahead of Marris's pace to sixty one and three homers ahead of Sammy which gives him some peace of mind but this relief lasts about as long as a trip around the bases. He knows that when he makes it back to the locker room room. We'll have to face a lot more questions once again. He feels like the whole world is crashing down on his head this morning. A blockbuster blockbuster baseball story became breaking news. Mark Maguire is using steroids. It was Associated Press reporter. Steve Will Stein who got the scoop while waiting to interview McGuire after a game he noticed a little Brown bottle labelled Andrew Stine Dione on the top shelf of the sluggers locker. We'll Stein didn't hold back his expose. He wrote the drugs ability to raise levels of the male hormone which builds lean muscle mass and promotes recovery the after injury is seen outside of baseball as cheating and potentially dangerous. McGuire his manager Tony Larussa and Major League Baseball's the PR office. Were quick to push back. Larussa pointed out that while Andrew Stine down is forbidden in the NCAA the NFL in the Olympics. It's one hundred percent sent legal in baseball the PR office of Major League Baseball pointed out that mcgwire hit forty nine home runs as a rookie implying that he always had that power after all the juice doesn't swing the bat but then McGuire went and made a boneheaded statement. He said hey everybody everybody. I know in the game of baseball uses the same stuff. I use yeah. That's not what baseball was hoping to hear just like that. Kamark's potentially record breaking season became an indictment of every player in the League so no despite hitting number fifty two tonight mark mark is not exactly eager to face questioners back in the locker room. He trudges down the cinderblock hall steam. Practically shooting from his is years just four years ago. Baseball players went on strike. Everybody hated US fans media even President Bill Clinton. The game was left for dead. Now look at us. Nobody can get enough of me or enough of Sammy. We're saving the sport and this is the thanks get some. No name boy scout reporter is trying to tear down my whole life over this if the season has taught McGuire anything. It's taught him plenty. It's that there's something deep in the human psyche. That's almost afraid of greatness this year alone. Marks discovered that self destructive destructive instinct within himself but he beat it. It nearly cost him his sanity but he won and now he'll be damned. If he's going to let some pencil necked reporter porter drag him back down. McGuire arrives at the door to the locker room. He breathes deeply racing himself for the press waiting on the other side. Aw nobody knows how hard this all is and now they just keep on making it harder mark mark any comment on the story you on the jurors using steroids.

Come on what the shrink set something about hide and go seek no rebound reframing your perspective looking. That's it find find the wind okay. He tells himself for starters. You got on base by being patient. Then you made it all the way to third and then you saw home-plate from the right angle scoring angle technically you're getting closer. Keep the faith. He tells himself work the process and keep the faith breath. It's now the bottom of the fifth. The cubs are at that Sammy confidently strolls up to the plate this time he doesn't bother to shoot the dirty look. He only has eyes for the cardinals. Pitcher big bad wolf is Sammy is now positive. He hasn't figured out so so so the batter. He's one for two cents. Rocket tipped back goes neighboring track. He's he's got it also gives him the major league lead in runs. Bennett in the major league lead in home runs and Sammy who just missed in the third puts the cubs on top. I four with his forty eighth. The fans going crazy here in Chicago. As so surrounds first-base McGuire turns and stares at the dirt of the Infield he can't bear to look at Sosa jog around the bases aces big. Mac just lost the lead in the home run race for the first time all season. Sammy returns to the home dugout conquering hero his teammates ambush him with barrage of high fives then Sammy emerges from the Dugout for a curtain call he steps up to the top step and lifts his batting helmet to thank the crowd the fans go Berserk Sammy Sosa. The new king of baseball smiles back his loyal subjects and in that moment a big bright neon thought flashes across his mind now you know who I am. It's the top of the six two outs. The cardinals are now down six to to the bases are loaded and here comes mark mark. Mcguire again this time big. Mac faces the cubs Middle Reliever Terry Adams lately. Adams can't get a single soul out really really. He's been a dumpster fire on a dirt mound as mark tightens his grip around his bat. He thinks it's now or never couldn't dream up a better slump buster than seeing this guile amount out of the corner of his eye. He notices the catcher setup far outside. He knows the first pitch is going to be garbage so he lets pass doesn't swing ball one. Then the next pitch is called a strike mark clinches. The next pitch whizzes out of zone yet. He still swings fouling it back so now it's one into one ball to strikes mark then stares here's at Terry Adams on the mound and at the same time tries to calm is growing inner panic but then he picks up on something that catches him completely wheatley off guard despite having this home run machine against the ropes. Terry Adams looks terrified. Mark almost feel sorry for him. He understands that sort of fear but then you're rica the breakthrough. He's been desperate for arrives. He realizes this is when it's me versus the world. I can't win. I'm big MAC yeah but the world is bigger. When it's me verse Sammy I can't win. That's not baseball Paul. That's not the game I love. When it's me versus the pitcher alone then the whole world is on my team? Mark Locks eyes with Adams items that it's just the two of them in Wrigley just like his dad todd in the Maguire Families Southern California backyard twenty odd years ago but marks works inner voice isn't done with him yet that nagging undercutting self destructive pests stands up front center. Maguire's mind clears his throat and does something completely new. His inner voice shouts towards the pitcher's mound at the top of its lungs. Bring it one and two two big Mac Adam sets. Here's Chicago's off Houston's. That's GONNA score cardinal run. Mark just helped to generate a run without taking his bat off his shoulder. The scores now cubs six cardinals three. He's sparking a comeback with pure intimidation nation to pitches later. He's walked.

"Maguire the cardinals star slugger cycles through his routine pre-game stretches stretches reaching toward his toes as he attempts to loosen up but the real tightness isn't in his body. It's in his mind three weeks ago. McGuire there was seven home runs ahead of Sammy on track to smash Roger Marris's record of sixty one in a single season then marks white-hot bat froze over doubt Krypton. His confidence spiraled now big. Mac has fallen behind his record-breaking pace by this point in nineteen sixty. He won Roger Marris had fifty home runs. McGuire only has forty seven at the moment and Sammy now. He's got forty seven to so down on the Wrigley Infield. Mark is deepen his own head. The last month has been a nightmare. He's cooling off Sammy's getting hot. His cardinals regionals have no chance at the playoffs. Sammy's cubs are playing for wild card berth. Marks doubts are now eating him alive while Sammy seems to be having the time time of his life. McGuire looks up from his stretch across the infield there Sosa cracking up his teammates with an endless stream of jokes. How does he do it. McGuire asks himself. How can you stand front and center in the spotlight and just be so comfortable lately. The media has framed their home run race like two heavyweights trading haymakers in his interviews. Sammy's been leaning into the media narrative but Maguire is. He's always quick to point out that they're not pitching against each other. It's not really head to head of course the reporters don't care the two are definitely rivals rivals but there's no animosity no history between them and they can't directly affect each other. They're more like distance runners constantly pushing each other to keep pace as before one wins on a final kick beams of light shoot through the sky to illuminate the night game between the two and L. Central rivals vols. Mark looks down at his cleats to avoid the glare control what you can control he tells himself release what you can't sooner or later the process. It always works right now. The process is all you've got suddenly a shadow looms over McGuire. He looks up. It's Sammy me. Sosa says hey big MAC. Welcome to my home. Sammy reaches down to help McGuire to his feet before mark knows what's happening. Sammy's tugged him. I'm off. The ground disrupted his routine and wrapped them in a bear hug. Sammy continues. Let's have some fun tonight. Yeah McGuire Searches Sammy Smile. There's is not a hint of irony or malice. Sammy's one hundred percent happy to see him like childhood friends reuniting a high school reunion. No Gamesmanship no agenda just genuine joy sharing a moment with the only guy who understands what this all feels like up until now McGuire had been dreading this trip trip to Wrigley he knew his slump would be put under the microscope and set against Sosa surge but now mark realizes I'm here with the one guy a who fully relates to what I'm going through and if he can smile his way through this hey maybe I can to. He thinks you know what instead of always always focusing on how to beat away the sky on my heels. Maybe I should try being more like Sammy.

A common theme emerged. Yeah both were born to crush dinger's but it was overcoming failure that transformed them from reluctant sluggers into superstars this episode to generating power. It's it's players are the island's number one export trouble is sammy doesn't want to be here. He doesn't even want to play baseball. Sammy dreams of making it as a prizefighter. He drops all comers with his lightning quick hands at the boxing gym. That's where he'd rather be right now. Sparring winning building future putting in work not standing in right field waiting for a ball to come his way. He wants to be the aggressor someday. I'll be the light heavyweight champion of the world. He thinks a move mama out of our two room apartment at the abandoned hospital into a new house house. Maybe even by a proper headstone for dead to his father one died of an aneurysm when sammy was only seven years old one left behind hind seven kids and his beloved wife media as a poor sugar cane farmer.

The local will baseball godfather. Ask sammy if he's ready to field fly balls. Sammy's is catch the sun glinting off daughters gold plated watch. He definitely only like one of those watches but he still thinks boxing is the way to get one not baseball for now though hector is holding up a bat and ball and waving his way. Are you ready. Yes yes okay. His brother louis flashes him encouraging thumbs up.

He's used to it by now but he's still too shy to ever really get used to it. He then enters the athletic vladic center for the first of two life-changing meetings. He's scheduled for today.

These pretty much seen it all mark though mark stands out mark's not like the rest of nato's roster of baseball bros. Who are ripping ripping beer bonds at frat parties and chasing sorority girls. He doesn't have much of an ego. He doesn't have an interest in the limelight. Mark plays baseball to simply play a baseball. He loves it and that's why coach dato loves him.

A twelve year old so is nearly every other kid on the diamond but eight year old mark maguire is as big as any of them as he steps to the plate for his first little league at that all the other boys marks age play pony league standard little kid baseball but he's been bumped up to play with the bigger kids. It's it's already clear that this big kid is something special that fact doesn't make him any less nervous though mark adjusts his wobbly oversize oversized batting helmet but he can't adjust the constant anxiety in his head. Everybody's looking at me. Thanks mark my teammates. My coaches ages my brothers. My grandma thank gosh mom and dad are on a cruise. Mark got his athletic genes from his dad. John mcguire fire john maguire is the son of a former light heavyweight boxing contender. John himself was a promising athlete but childhood polio ended any sports dreams dreams before he could realize his potential sometimes marksman ginger worries that john's trying to live out his lost dreams through his voice mark in particular he pushes them into baseball basketball football even golf but the truth is mark loves sports sunup to sundown. He can't get enough more and more. He's been loving his time on the baseball especially pitching. There's something about the mental aspect of it the serenity on the mound trying to psych psych out the guy at the plate to control a game problem.
