Fill PNC Park was full for the first time all year and Hall of Fame second baseman Bill Mazeroskiin some text

looking good at 85, was paraded out to the mound to lob a ceremonial first pitch 62 years

after he beat the Yankees with that Game 7 World Series walk-off at Forbes Field.

The Yankees’ third visit to Pittsburgh since the 1960 Fall Classic

and first since 2017 is a big deal to Pirates fans, who never have much to cheer about.

Cole was emotional in a long pre-game interview with Pittsburgh media

and Holmes had a long Q &A with the group, as well.

Taillon was welcomed back, too, before his first start since the Pirates traded him to the Yankees two winter ago

Then they cheered and cheered while the Pirates beat up on Taillon
