Hal Smith was born today in 1931 and hit the second most-famous home run in Game 7 of the 1960 World Series for the Pirates.
---
Smith’s three-run shot, which he hit in the bottom of the eighth inning at Forbes Field, gave the Pirates a brief, 9-7 lead against the New York Yankees.
---
Entering the game in the eighth inning after catcher Smoky Burgess was lifted for a pinch-runner in the seventh, Smith came to bat with Dick Groat and Roberto Clemente on the corners.
---
Smith, who started just two games in the World Series, was ultimately left unprotected in the 1961 Major League Baseball expansion draft and was selected by the Houston Colt .45s and would catch the first MLB game in Houston baseball history

On August 11, 1929, Babe Ruth became the founding member of the 500 home run club. The milestone came during the second inning of a game against the Indians at League Park in Cleveland. The solo shot off of Willis Hundin got the scoring started for the day. Ruth's first home run came on May 6, 1915. He was a Boston Red Sox pitcher with a little pop in his bat. He hit four that year. That pitcher with pop developed into an outfielder with pop by 1918. The story was just getting started for the man who finished his career with more than 700 home runs.

In an exciting three-way fight, the Dodgers repeated as NL pennant-winners, taking their final three games to edge out the Milwaukee Braves with a 93-61 record. Don Newcombe en-route to winning the NL MVP, and the first-ever Cy Young award clinched the flag on the final day with his 27th win.
---
In the World Series, the opponent was the New York Yankees for the 7th time in 16 years. The series got off to a promising start as the Dodgers scored 13 runs in Game 2 to go 2-0. The Dodgers would only score six runs in the final five games, getting shut out twice, including Don Larsen’s Game 5, Perfect Game.
---
Following the season, the Dodgers would trade Jackie Robinson to the rival New York Giants, however staying true to the Dodger blue, Robinson would choose retirement.
