The 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates season was the team's 79th season. The 95-59 team of 1960, which finished seven games in front of the second-place Milwaukee Braves to win their first National League championship in 33 seasons, featured eight All-Stars, but was widely predicted to lose the World Series to a powerful New York Yankees team.[citation needed] In one of the most memorable World Series in history, the Pirates were defeated by more than ten runs in three games, won three close games, then recovered from a 7-4 deficit late in Game 7 to eventually win on a walk-off home run by Bill Mazeroski, a second baseman better known for defensive wizardry.

Offseason

  • Prior to 1960 season: José Martínez was signed as an amateur free agent by the Pirates.[1]

Regular season

  • September 6, 1960: Team captain Dick Groat was drilled on his left wrist by an inside pitch from Braves pitcher Lew Burdette.[2] Groat was lost for the rest of the season. Dick Schofield stepped in for the injured Groat and went three for three in that September 6 game. The Pirates won the game 5-3 and Schofield would go on to hit .414 for the rest of the season.[2]
  • September 25, 1960: In Milwaukee, the Pirates clinched their first pennant in 33 years.[3]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
