Bill Mazeroski, the author of perhaps the biggest home run in Major League Baseball history, and his wife Milene are set to auction off their home in Greensburg on March 8. The hero of the 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates World Series win is moving east to suburban Philadelphia to be close to family.
The property was purchased by the couple in 1959 for $4,600, according to the Tribune-Review. They took out a mortgage for $22,000 the following summer. The home is a custom-built 1700 sq. ft home consisting of 3 bedrooms, formal room, kitchen, dining room, enclosed sunroom/family room and a finished basement on 19.618 acres.
The auction is being handled by Mark Ferry Auctioneers, Inc. There will be open house previews on March 8 from 1-3 pm and March 17 from 5-7 pm.
Mazeroski hit the only Game 7 walk-off home run in World Series history to lead the Pirates to a win over the New York Yankees.
