Baseball season was a winner
Never before has there been a Major League Baseball season
like 1998. Fans in record number filled the stadiums to
watch the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs no matter who
their opponent was.
Cardinal Mark McGuire and Cub Sammy Sosa were in a history
making race to overcome a 37 year old record set by Roger
Maris. Maris hit 61 homeruns in 1961 breaking Babe Ruth's
record of 60 home runs in a single season.It's hard to

Aggie head coach R. C. Slocum has never won the big game.
Here is his chance, but don't bet on it.The Aggies never
score many points against a tough opponent ranked like
