Happy 10/13, 3:36

07.jpgNeed I really say more?

It is, of course, the 49th anniversary of Bill Mazeroski’s Game 7, game-winning home run over the Yankees in the 1960 World Series.

Right now, dozens of Pirates fans are gathering on the outskirts of the University of Pittsburgh’s campus, where a sector of the Forbes Field wall remains. These fans will listen to all of Game 7 on the radio, and it’s timed so that at 3:36 pm, Mazeroski hits that ball over the outfield wall, just as he did 49 years ago.

I went to this gathering last year and emerged with this story to tell, in case you want to live it again.
