After Sosa hit #52 earlier in the day, McGwire connected for #54 in the 8th inning off Marlins reliever Justin Speier. Big Mac’s 509-foot long ball made him the first NL player since Ralph Kiner in 1949 to hit at least 54 homers in a season and only the third NL player ever to accomplish the feat. McGwire also joined Babe Ruth as the only player in MLB history with multiple 54-HR seasons. #BigMacFlashback
