The Pittsburgh Pirates won it all in 1960. Hot dogs were thirty cents at Forbes Field. But beer was not available for sale. But we have to think a few Iron’s were enjoyed after Maz touched homeplate.
The paragraph which is difficult to read in the first picture of the 1961 Pirates yearbook states the following:
Father Pitt had never experienced tumult such as was set off by the 9th inning victory of the Pirates. October Scenes such as are shown here were commonplace from Oakland to the Golden Triangle.
This was more than a team victory–it was a civic triumph. No one who was a part of it will ever forget the excitement and pleasure that came with capturing the World Series.
