Tom's Latest Interactions
Wow, that's great to hear! Mrs. Hassell was my 6th grade art teacher and her son David sat at my table – with Jack Nimphie and Larry Wheeler. Our table was right up by Mrs. Hassell's desk. On Oct 13, 1960, we had a transistor radio going quietly with the 7th game of the world series between the Yankees and Pirates. Mrs. Hassell kept hearing it and making us turn it off. The lead kept going back and forth, back and forth. Somehow we got it going again in time to hear Bill Mazeroski hit his legendary walkoff homer (we didn't have that term then) to give it to the Pirates, 10-9. It's still the only walkoff homer in a WS 7th game. We burst into a loud cheer. Mrs. Hassell took the radio. I think it was Larry's.
