Bill Mazeroski knows how it feels to win a championship in the "Steel City." "Maz" was in attendance at Consol Energy Center supporting the hometown Pittsburgh Penguins against the San Jose Sharks in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Thursday.

The former Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman, who was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001, is known for his walk-off home run against the New York Yankees in a 10-9 victory in Game 7 of the 1960 World Series, which was the last time a Pittsburgh major sports team won a title within city limits.

Since then, Pittsburgh teams have won 11 championships. The Steelers won six Super Bowl titles, most in NFL history, with each coming at a neutral site. The Pirates won two World Series titles in 1971 and 1979, each in Baltimore. The Penguins won the Stanley Cup three times: in 1991 at the Minnesota North Stars, in 1992 at the Chicago Blackhawks and in 2009 at the Detroit Red Wings.

Pittsburgh lost Game 5 to San Jose 4-2. Game 6 is at SAP Center in San Jose on Sunday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports).
