Game 7 of 1960 World Series to be shown for first time in 50 years tonight

By Cindy Boren

Finally. Months ago, it was reported that a rare kinescope of Game 7 of the 1960 World Series -- you know, the one in which (spoiler alert) Bill Mazeroski's walk-off home run gave the Pittsburgh Pirates a 10-9 victory over the New York Yankees -- had been found in Bing Crosby's wine cellar.

Tonight, the game will be seen in its entirety for the first time since it was played. It'll get the Costas treatment (hosted by Bob, with interviews with Bobby Richardson, Dick Groat, Bill Virdon, Vern Law, Roy Face and Hal Smith) on the MLB Network at 8 p.m. EST. If you don't have access to the MLB Network, DVD sales will follow.

It's going to be beyond cool.

Comments

I remember this as if it were yesterday. I was in the second grade, and rushed home from school to see the last inning. As I watched the drama unfold and saw Mazeroski hit the winning shot, my mother was talking on the telephone with her mother, and she told me later that she heard my grandfather screaming and yelling in the background. Grandad hated the Yankees with a passion, and had grown tired of seeing them reach the World Series in all but two seasons since 1949. The screaming and yelling my mother heard was his glee at seeing the Yanks lose.
