Comment of the Day: there were others at the 1960 World Series

Sep 29, 2010, 5:03 PM EST

Reader Joerf was at Game 7 as well:

My father and I were at the game.  We were sitting in a box on the first base side, the tickets were a gift from one of his clients.  My dad wasn’t much of a baseball fan but I loved it.  Benny Benack was playing “the Bucs are going all the way, all the way this year.”

People were singing on the way into the park.  My dad wanted to leave
because the Yankees were winning in the 8th and I wouldn’t budge so we stayed.  I had a coke in one hand and was so excite when Maz came up to bat.  When he hit that home run the Coke went flying into the air and everyone was screaming and crying.

It was one of the top events in my life.  I always tell my kids #1 seeing the Beatles, #2 Maz’s homerun, #3 meeting my husband & #4 having them.  It was a great day . . . and night.

Great story. But I do have to say, Joerf — with all due respect to your father, be he with us still or elsewhere — wanting to leave Game 7 of the World Series early would . . . not have been the best choice. Glad you talked him out of it.

    But the TRAFFIC! Why would you want to stay?

    Not to mention all the arrogant Yankee fans trash-talking after they would’ve won. They were arrogant back then too, right?

    You betcha! If you need any documentation on that, just take another look at 61*.
