4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding celebration of a magical season! 6 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is, by far, the best McGwire book on the market...written by people who really understand what happened this past baseball season! The book wonderfully illustrates each of McGwire's 70 homeruns. It lists every detail and fact imaginable about the homerun hero, including who, where, when, and how he did what the entire city of St. Louis is still trying to get over! Tons of photos and illustrations give the book credit where words just cannot do. Personally, after watching homerun #62 at Busch Stadium, I knew that I had to find the perfect book summarizing the season...this is that perfect book!

It was a fabulous book which relived all of the excitement of the homerun-record chase of the 1998 baseball season. The photographs are excellent and the text is very well-written as well. The exact distance, pitcher, count, inning, and stadium are given for every one of "Big Mac's" homers, with at least one picture for each. Not only does it cover McGwire's homers, but it also covers the homeruns of Sammy Sosa. The introduction by St. Luis Cardinal announcer, Jack Buck is nice too. Overall, Celebrating 70:MARK MCWIRE'S HISTORIC SEASON is a must-have for any baseball enthusiast.

5.0 out of 5 stars A baseball fan's delight! 13 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
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!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 12 Oct 2000
By Todd Hawley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
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.

Format:Hardcover
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.
