Somewhere in my uncatalogued archives there is a notebook with the 1960 series scored (hooky time). I lived in Albany, New York still reeling from the West Coast defections and seething from the relentless NYY fan ball busting. It was sweet!

Incredible! And being from nearby, he must have been a big Pirates fan, at least for the World Series. I was a big Pirates fan because I rooted so hard against the Yankees, because they kept beating the Dodgers in the World Series.

I saw Sandy Amaros' catch.

My dad was at the Maz game, a last-minute ticket offered by a friend in Oberlin, Ohio, a doctor who said he would fly his private plane to the game, BUT he would be on call later that day and they wouldn't be able to see the end of the game. Four men boarded the doctor's plane at the former tiny Oberlin airport, flew to Pittsburgh, watched 7 innings, left the park, and flew back to Oberlin, unaware of the finish of the game until they arrived home. Dad often told people that he was at that game. But he never mentioned seeing the finish.

Talking about Cabrera's hit in 1992... a few of us witnessed what Maz did in 1960.

Actually, I listened to it on a radio that somebody brought out to soccer practice.
