World Series Remember When: Bill Mazeroski walks off

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

World Series memories: Larsen's perfect game | Gibson's home run | Mays' catch | Podsednik's walkoff HR

For today's memory, let's go back to 1960, when the Pittsburgh Pirates took down the mighty New York Yankees in most dramatic fashion. Take a watch:

Thanks to Hall of Famer Bill Mazeroski's shot, the Pirates won the World Series in seven games despite being outscored by the Yankees 55-27. The series MVP was Bobby Richardson, who played for the losing Yankees.

Still, the enduring portrait of the series is far and away Mazeroski's shot. It's gone down in history as one of the greatest moments in the World Series. And rightfully so. Tip of the cap to you and yours, Mr. Mazeroski.
