Product Description

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 team 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 League history 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 televisi

Finishing up what broadcaster Mel Allen called "one of the zaniest World Series that you could ever witness," Game 7 of the 1960 series between the Pirates and Yankees has rightly gone down in history as one of the most exciting final games in history, as a heavily outmatched Pittsburgh team improbably went toe to toe with a Yankee lineup that included Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, and Yogi Berra. The picture quality of this presentation may be grainy--as no official Major League Baseball copy of the televised game remains, this is taken from a black-and-white kinescope recently discovered in the late actor Bing Crosby's wine cellar--but the content is stellar, allowing fans to relive a game that featured one of the major leagues' most exciting moments (Hal Smith's ultra-clutch three-run homer, which put the Pirates back in the game), as well as one of its most notorious (the infield bad hop that connected with Tony Kubek's throat, a freak shot from which the New York player's career arguably never fully recovered). What truly places this game in the Parthenon, though, is the bottom of the ninth, when, with the game tied, Pirates second baseman Bill Mazeroski stepped up to the plate and… well, Hollywood wishes it could write an underdog saga like this. Extras include a wonderfully hokey archival recap of the entire series, short interviews with members of both teams, and the option to listen to either the original television audio or the more histrionic radio broadcast. --Andrew Wright
