Mazeroski Statue To Go Up Outside PNC Park

As part of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ commemoration of the 50th anniversary of winning the 1960 World Series, the most famous moment of that season, and one of the most indelible moments in baseball history, will be immortalized in bronze:

I am glad that they went with the rounding 3rd base pose, and not a more routine defensive pose.  This is what Maz is known for and why he gets a statute, after all.  Now let’s just hope they are still playing baseball on October 13th this season (for a change) so the moment can be commemorated in style!
