20 Years Ago on Feb. 20, 1999 -- What Will Mac (Mark McGwire) Do?

February 20, 1999: We went with a Saturday sports promo with a baseball season preview featuring Mark McGwire, posing a semi-rhetorical question without realizing that the answer 20 years later would include, "not get inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame because his career was built on a foundation of performance-enhancing drugs."
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
