1960 was the final season in which pro baseball saw the two leagues with just eight teams as the American League announced its first-ever expansion to ten teams for the 1961 season.
Pennant races saw Pittsburgh end decades of futility to win the flag in the senior circuit, and also saw the final pennant of an amazing 40-year run of dominance by the New Yorkers in the junior circuit.
And what a championship series it was. New York outscored Pittsburgh over the entire seven-game series, only to watch the Alleghenies cop the crown on the first-ever Series-winning home run in the home half of the final inning of Game Seven.
