Ranked by ESPN as the greatest home run of all time: espn.go.com To view the longer version: www.youtube.com Forbes Field – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: On October 13, 1960 @3:36 PM, Pittsburgh Pirate Hall of Fame Second Baseman, Bill Mazeroski, hits the greatest and most memorable homerun in Major League Baseball history off New York Yankees pitcher Ralph Terry. The renowned game winning shot, which capped off the best World Series game of all time, occurred in the bottom of the ninth inning of game seven of the 1960 World Series against Casey Stengel’s heavily favored New York Yankees. Could there have been a more dramatic homerun? Today, some 50 years later, Maz’s blast is still the only Game 7, 9th-inning walk-off home run in World Series history. Watch Maz’s historic homerun as called by Hall of Fame broadcaster Chuck Thompson; “Well, a little while ago, when we mentioned that this one, in typical fashion, was going right to the wire, little did we know; Art Ditmar throws—There’s a swing and a high fly ball going deep to left, this may do it! Back to the wall goes Berra, it is over the fence, home run, the Pirates win!”
