It was a series that had to be seen to be believed, and a moment that to this day is hard to fathom! The mighty New York Yankees looked invinceable heading into the 1960 Fall Classic. Yet, after Bill Mazeroski's game-winning two-run Home Run in Game 1, it seemed like a little magic was in the Forbes Field air. With the series lead going back-and-forth throughout, and the Game 7 score swinging wildly before settling in at 9-9 in the ninth, Mazeroski stepped to the plate to lead off the bottom of the ninth for the Pittsburgh Pirates. On the second pitch from Yankees releiver Ralph Terry - SMASH! Maz's line drive carried over the high wall in left, and history was made! Every kid's daydream came became reality - the World Series was won with a Home Run in the bottom of the ninth of Game 7.
