In the most dramatic moment in World Series history, Bill Mazeroski of the Pittsburgh Pirates hits a walk-off home run in the ninth inning of Game 7 to beat the New York Yankees 10-9. It was statistically the oddest World Series, as the Pirates won four close games, while the Yankees won three blowouts. Despite losing the series, the Yankees scored a record 55 runs, outscoring Pittsburgh 55-27.
