ESPN just debuted a trailer for 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer premiering next week, which is focused on the memorable 1998 home run chase between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. Check it out below.

"Entering the season, the sport was still stinging from the labor battles that had cut the 1994 campaign short and forced the cancellation of the World Series," ESPN writes. "But when McGwire, who had hit 58 home runs in 1997, got off to a torrid start in '98, and was joined on the home run leaderboard that June by the red-hot Sosa, the country became enthralled, desperate for updates. The race for 61 was on."
