Bill Mazeroski with Jim Lachimia




PM: What do you remember most about your induction weekend up in Cooperstown?
B.M.: Well (laughing), trying to make a speech that I knew I couldn't make. I started, but that weekend I was all mixed up with what was happening, and I teared up. But that didn't surprise me. Heck, I get teared up sometimes when I watch a sad commercial on TV.

PM: Another Pirate World Series hero, Kent Tekulve, says you're a pretty good golfer. Is that true?
B.M.: (Laughing) No, that's not true. I'm a 9 or 10 handicap. At one time I could play a little bit, but I was never real good because I never ever practiced at it. I always tell people that I worked at one game [baseball] and I just played the other [golf].
