DOG ASIDE:

The 1960 World Series was played between the Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League (NL) and the New York Yankees of the American League (AL)….played from October 5 to 13, 1960.  It is most notable for the Game 7….when a ninth-inning home run hit by Bill Mazeroski….winning the game for the Pirates 10–9….and also winning them their third World Championship overall and first since 1925.  This World Series featured seven past, present, or future league Most Valuable Players….as the Pirates had two….Dick Groat (1960) and Roberto Clemente (1966)….while the Yankees had five….Yogi Berra (1951, 1954, 1955), Bobby Shantz (1952), Mickey Mantle (1956, 1957, 1962), Roger Maris (1960, 1961), and Elston Howard (1963).

As noted in the superstition called the “Ex-Cub Factor”….as this was the only Series after 1945 and until 2001….in which a team with three or more former members of the Chicago Cubs (Don Hoak,Smoky Burgess and Gene Baker) was able to win a World Series.
