On October 13, 1960 the Pittsburgh Pirates completed one of the most unlikely upsets in World Series history. It was a classic, tense Game 7 marked by heroics, lead changes, and a stunning home run from "Maz."After six games, the heavily favored New York Yankees had compiled impressive Fall Classic numbers: .340 batting average, 78 hits, and 46 runs to the Pirates 17. Yet the opportunistic Pirates had the series even at three wins apiece.In Game 7, the Pirates stormed to an early 4-0 lead,but waves of scoring from both clubs had the game knotted at nine in the bottom of the ninth. Then 24-year-old Bill Mazeroski, known more for his glove than his bat, approached the plate and launched the first World Series-ending home run in Major Leaguehistory, setting off a delirious celebration that reverberated from Forbes Field across Pittsburgh and through the annals of all-time sports achievements.Direct from the Major League Baseball archives, this rare and extraordinary television broadcast has been restored for this remarkable DVD presentation. It is the quintessential making of a Fall Classic hero, an iconic moment, and one unforgettable baseball game.
