Default 60th Anniversary of Maz's Homer

I almost forgot that today is the 60th anniversary of Mazeroski's Homerun. What a sad Pirate fan I am. The HOF induction watch comes from Maz's estate.

WOW, I forgot as well. I'm assuming they didn't have a reunion this year, which is really sad.

Great stuff!

And today is the 31st anniversary (wow!) of Will Clark and the Giants winning their first pennant in 27 years. I’ve never been in a stadium so loud.

Maz's Slick fielding and that home run helped propel him to the Hall of Fame. The decisions that Casey made in that series were also the final nail in the coffin for him getting fired by the Yankees.

Casey's decision to pitch Whitey Ford in 2 games instead of 3 was probably the difference in a slam dunk win for the Yanks. Whitey pitched 2 complete games and gave up 0 runs...and he wanted to pitch.

Art Ditmar, over Ford If I remember correctly? Can only imagine how Yankee fans felt back then, when seeing it now makes me shake my head!

Yep, and Ditmar only lasted 3 innings giving up 3 runs.

I'd still put my money on Vernon Law for games 1, 4, and 7.

Normally I would agree, but Ford was a monster during those years...just look at that series and the 61 series. He wasn't going to be beat, but then, Mazeroski shouldn't have hit that homer either. LOL

Law had an awesome 1960 season, and he was starting 2 games at home.
Edge to the Deacon. There's a false myth that the Pirates were a weak team, but they had outstanding depth on both sides, and amazing defensive efficiency.

Here's a snapshot that I own of Game 7 winning pitcher Harvey Haddix warming up prior to him entering the game in the top of the 9th inning.

Herb Soltman and the Game 7 gang had a ceremony on Tuesday at PNC Park care of the Pirates in which social distancing was observed:

https://www.post-gazette.com/sports/...s/202010130151

At the Wall, there were two groups of celebration totaling around a hundred people at the times of the Mazeroski home run. One group was listening to a disc player while 30 feet away, just outside the Katz School of Business, another smaller group was watching the Crosby video on a laptop.

There was no social distancing :

Also, the video grouping's Mazeroski home run celebration happened at 3:36 p.m.

Great items everyone! Here is a bat that was made for the 25th anniversary. Elmer Gray was the scouting director for the Pirates in the mid 1980s.
