The Great Races Of The 1998 MLB Season

There were two great races in the 1998 MLB season. The one that captivated the nation at the time, the Great Home Run Race, has been marred by subsequent developments. There was another race—a furious three-team battle for the NL wild-card spot—that was mildly under the radar at the time, and has been all but forgotten by history. This is a race that deserves a better historical fate.
