For some Pittsburghers, baseball's most famous home run still brings a thrill -- even after 49 years. Bill Mazeroski's shot in the bottom of the ninth won the 1960 World Series and set off a raucous celebration in the city. Forbes Field is long gone, but a portion of the outfield wall remains. That's where fans gather every year, on the game's anniversary. They listen to a recorded broadcast of the game, inning by inning, then cheer once again as Maz sends a 1-0 pitch over the left-field wall.
