William Stanley Mazeroski
On October 13, 1960, Pirates Second Baseman William Stanley Mazeroski was the batter in the bottom of the 9th inning of game 7 of the World Series at Forbes Field. The Pittsburgh Pirates were still battling the New York Yankees and the Series was tied at three games apiece. The score was tied 9-9. There were no outs with no one on base when Mazeroski stepped to the plate on a 1-0 pitch at 3:36 p.m., Maz hit the only walk-off home run in Game 7 to win a World Series with a blast over the 406-foot sign on the outfield wall. This statue captures the moment when Bill Mazeroski rounded second base in celebration of one of the greatest moments in Pittsburgh sports history.
This statue was sculpted by Susan Wagner based on a photo taken by James Klingensmith, Post-Gazette photographer.
Erected 2010 by City of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
