Maz Comes Home
I finally have a reason to write a favorable post about the Pirates! Unfortunately it’s about the 1960 Pirates. As you probably know, the family of Bing Crosby recently came across a kine scope recording of the 1960 World Series game. This is ‘The Game’. Yes game 7 which was won by the Maz home run. The Bingster was a partial owner of the Bucs and had someone record the game from a television broadcast. Of course the networks didn’t save any of this stuff so it is the only known recording of this event.
Bob Costas announced that he’ll be hosting the film for MLB films and that it will premier at a theater in Pittsburgh. This will mark the first time the game has been viewed in public in slightly more that fifty years.
This will be one hot ticket and will finally give Pittsburghers a reason to celebrate the Buccos in November. Imagine attending this screening with Maz and every other Pittsburgh hero in the house.
