Yankees star absent from '60 Series program cover
And speaking of the 1960 World Series program . . . TSN reported that prior to Game 5, Roy Face, the Pirates ace relief pitcher, had sent a program over to the Yankees clubhouse to be autographed.
“It came back without a single signature,” according to the paper. In relief of Harvey Haddix that day, Face pitched 2-2/3 innings of hitless baseball, sealing the Yankees 5-2 loss.
