A Pittsburgh Wall We Know and Love (and a Couple of our Regular Retaining Walls)

A very special wall Forbes Field.

The remains.

Forbes Field is long gone (1972)

-but the wall where the1960 World Series was won by Bill Mazeroski’s homerun stands.

It’s called the Greatest Homerun Ever.  You can watch it at YouTube here

Forbes Field

And the retaining walls of Pittsburgh are featured prominently in Rick Sebak‘s excellent video 25 Things I Like About Pittsburgh available for viewing on Youtube for a short time.

You can’t believe how many retaining walls there are in every neighborhood of the city.

  1. Forbes Field is my favorite wall – October 13th they replay the 7th game of the 1960 World Series with Maz hitting the homer at 3:36. I go every year since I retired and it brings back such great memories. Thanks for posting that wall on your blog!
