After being announced as one of the next three 30 for 30 documentaries, ESPN has now released the first trailer for the Long Gone Summer. Set to premiere this week, the documentary chronicles the summer of 1998 when Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa both looked to take the MLB‘s single-season home run record.

During the season, McGwire and Sosa set out on a shared quest to immortalize themselves in baseball history by toppling Roger Maris’ record of 60 home runs in a single-season. Directed by A.J. Schnack, the Long Gone Summer features interviews with both players, teammates and insiders, along with footage from the monumental season. It is interesting to note that McGwire has openly admitted to his use of performance-enhancing drugs, while Sosa has never owned up to using steroids.

Watch the first trailer for Long Gone Summer above and look for the 30 For 30 documentary to premiere June 14 at 9 p.m. EDT on ESPN.

In case you missed it, Conor McGregor recently announced his retirement on Twitter.
