Today back in '60, Bill Mazeroski blasted the only Game 7 walk-off in World Series history, putting the Pirates over the Yankees. Side note: if you're a Pirates fan, it only seems like that was the last great moment in franchise history; the team was actually pretty good during the Willie Stargell era. Wednesday of this week is the anniversary of Kirk Gibson's famous blast. It seemed a good time to dedicate some time to the concept of ending a game in grand fashion.
