Hall of Famer Bill Mazeroski rates as one of the best fielding second basemen of all-time. He was a seven-time All-Star, captured eight Gold Gloves and took part in a record 1,706 double plays. 'Maz' collected 2,016 hits in his long 17-year major league career, and helped the Pirates make the playoffs in 1972 and the World Series in 1960 and 1971. Mazeroski, who played his entire career with the Pirates, and was a career .260 hitter, is well remembered for hitting a ninth inning, game winning homer that won Game 7 of the 1960 World Series to pace the Pirates over the Yankees.
His best offense year, 1958, 'Maz' lined 19 homers, a Pirate record for second baseman, and had 68 RBIs, while hitting .275.
