ESPN’s new 30 for 30 film Long Gone Summer, directed by AJ Schnack, takes viewers back to the landmark 1998 baseball season and the record-breaking home run duel of Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa that ignited the passion and imagination of fans and non-fans everywhere. This intimate portrait features in-depth interviews with both McGwire and Sosa, who talk at length for the first time in more than two decades, and carries viewers through every twist and turn of the sluggers’ historic chase of Roger Maris’ iconic record of 61 home runs in a single season. Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, a St. Louis-area native and current Chicago resident, composed the musical score for the film, which serves as a journey back through time that recalls how seismic and emotional the story was.
