William Stanley Mazeroski (September 5, 1936-), known for his Hall of Fame defensive ability, hit a legendary home run in Game 7 of the 1960 World Series to end the game and the series for the Pittsburgh Pirates first world championship since 1925. Mazeroski’s shot over the left field wall at Forbes Field remains the only home run to end a World Series. Noticed and hailed more for his glove, Mazeroski had decent numbers, but had his power hampered by the deep walls of his home field. Maz hit double the number home runs on the road (93) than he hit at home (45). “The Glove”, as dubbed by a Pirates broadcaster, led the National League in assists nine times, double plays eight times and fielding percentage three times. The ten-time All-Star selection and eight-time Gold Glove recipient holds numerous defensive records for a second baseman. Mazeroski was a member of two World Series champions (1960, 1971). Bill Mazeroski retired with 2,016 hits, 769 runs, 853 RBI and a career .260 batting average while boasting a .983 fielding percentage. The Veterans Committee elected William Stanley Mazeroski to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001.
