Pittsburgh Pirates Bio & Franchise History

To those under the age of 30, the Pittsburgh Pirates are a team that toiled in futility prior to this recent string of success. To those of an older generation, as well as those with a broader grasp of baseball history, this is a franchise which has a relatively flourishing history – one that extends as far back as the first ever World Series back in 1903.

Their opponent in this maiden voyage was the Boston Americans (later to known as the Red Sox) and came into this series led by star hitter Honus Wagner. The future Hall of Famer was held to a batting average of .222 as Boston won the best-of-nine match-up in eight games.

But Wagner would have plenty more good days on the diamond than bad ones. “The Flying Dutchman” was the unquestioned standout player for the club. He won eight batting titles and led the league in doubles on seven occasions.

By the time his career had ended in 1917, Wagner had a career batting average of .328. He also led Pittsburgh to another World Series – this one in 1909. This time, against the Detroit Tigers, the Pirates prevailed in seven games – with Wagner hitting .333 and rookie pitcher Babe Adams earning the victory in the deciding contest.

The 1909 title didn’t lead to more winning right away. The Bucs were never in contention for the next 11 years, but improved by 1921.

Four years later, Pittsburgh found itself in the Fall Classic again. The Washington Senators, last season’s champions, tried desperately to hold on to their crown. But it was the Pirates, again going the distance, who would wear it for a second time. In Game 7, they were able to overcome an early 4-0 deficit against legendary pitcher Walter Johnson. A three-run bottom of the eighth made way for a 9-7 victory.

A group of Hall of Fame hitters sparked the offense by 1927. Two happened to come from the same family. Lloyd Waner (“Little Poison”) began his career with a .355 mark that season, while older brother Paul (“Big Poison”) won the National League MVP by hitting .380 and driving in 131 runs. Arky Vaughan and Pie Traynor also contributed big numbers, as the Pirates had established the best young talent in the majors.

However, no team in 1927 – maybe ever – could compete with the New York Yankees. Despite winning the NL pennant and reaching the World Series, “Murderers Row” swept away the Pirates in four straight.

It seemed as if Pittsburgh would be a regular representative of their league when it came to October baseball. It didn’t turn out that way. From 1928 through 1938, the Bucs finished second in the standings – but no better. From ’39 through 1957, it only got worse, as they rarely got above fourth place. The 1952 club was a putrid 42-112.

Easing the pain of those who supported the Pirates at picturesque Forbes Field was Ralph Kiner. His career in Pittsburgh would only last eight years (1946-53) and would ultimately be cut short by back ailments. But, when healthy, Kiner was as good a home run hitter as there was in baseball – leading the NL in that category for seven straight seasons. He slugged 51 in 1947, 54 more in 1949. His total would reach 301 in a Pirate uniform (369 total).

Kiner may have been the standout performer during dark days in the Steel City, but Roberto Clemente and others helped signal good times ahead. It all came together in 1960, with 95 victories and a pennant.

While these Pirates were new to the World Series, the New York Yankees were old hat. They had dominated the 1950s and were widely expected to win it again. It turned out to be a competitive series, but also a series of extremes. The Pirates won three of the first six games by a combined margin of six runs. The Yankees, meanwhile, won their three by an astounding spread of 35 runs.

The seventh and deciding game at Forbes Field produced an all-time moment for both the Pirates franchise and the game of baseball itself. An early 4-0 Pittsburgh advantage was seven straight from New York. However, a five-run Pirate rally in the bottom of the eighth was capped by a three-run homer from catcher Hal Smith. The Yankees countered with two in the top of the ninth to bring the game to a 9-9 draw.

Bill Mazeroski, noted for his seven Gold Gloves as a second baseman, led off the bottom of the ninth. Ralph Terry’s 1-0 offering was driven over the left-center field fence. Mazeroski’s blast marked the first time the World Series had ended with a home run and his joyous trip around the bases created an indelible image in the sport’s history.

Pittsburgh’s hope of riding that magic forward wouldn’t come true for another decade. And those struggles obscured the amazing talents of Clemente – MLB’s first Latin star. Determined, passionate, proud, talented — all apt descriptions this Hall of Fame right fielder who had a stellar bat and a rocket for an arm. He was intent on not just earning respect for his play on the field, but to provide a charitable impact on communities less fortunate — especially those in his native Puerto Rico.

If he had yet to establish respect from the American public as a superstar after his numerous All-Star appearances and an MVP in 1966, the 1971 season cemented it.

Clemente carried the Pirates to a division title, an NLCS victory over the San Francisco Giants, and rose to the occasion on the national stage in the World Series versus Baltimore. He hit .414 and provided a home run in Game 7. Steve Blass did the rest, pitching a complete game against the mighty Orioles and giving the Pirates their fourth title.

This set the tone for what would be a consistent run of winning for Pittsburgh in the 1970s. The Bucs made the postseason six times in the decade and was below .500 just once. But the franchise saw its darkest moment following the 1972 campaign.

Just months after recording hit No. 3,000 in the regular season finale and seeing his club lose a tough NLCS to the Cincinnati Reds, Clemente was killed in a plane crash en route to aid earthquake victims in Nicaragua. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1973.

The Pirates regrouped to reach the 1974 and 1976 NLCS, but lost on both tries. The Philadelphia Phillies prevented the Bucs from the ’77 and ‘78 division titles. Pittsburgh, though, would prevail in 1979 with arguably the most iconic and likeable team of that era.

Leading the way was veteran slugger Willie Stargell, a member of the ’71 club, and the NL’s co-MVP. Dave Parker was equally powerful – both with his bat and his arm in right field. Glasses-wearing Kent Tekulve looked more like a college professor than a relief pitcher.

Eternal optimist Chuck Tanner was the manager of a group that called themselves “The Family,” and 38-year-old Stargell was nicknamed “Pops.” It only made sense that the hit tune of the time, Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family,” became their theme song. Topping it all off was their style. The Pirates’ black and gold was on full display when it came to their uniforms, and those outlandish outfits were complemented by pillbox hats.

Pittsburgh won the East, swept the Reds in the NLCS and took on the Orioles in the World Series. Baltimore jumped out to a three-games-to-one lead. But Stargell led the charge back. The Pirates won Game 5 at home, then captured the last two on the road – capped by Stargell’s seventh-inning homer in Game 7. It was just the fourth time that a team came from 3-1 down to a World Series.

The bottom fell out by 1984. Not only were the Pirates losing, several players were embroiled in a cocaine-related scandal.

Jim Leyland took over as manager in 1986 and would soon generate a turnaround. Barry Bonds and Bobby Bonilla also rose through the minor league system and were both established members of the big league club by 1988. Two years later, the Pirates were back on top as NL East champs.

It would be the first of three straight division flags for Pittsburgh. But in each of those seasons, the end result was the same – an NLCS loss. The third and final one of those defeats (1992 versus the Atlanta Braves) was the most crushing of all.

The Pirates led Game 7 by a run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Stan Belinda was tasked with closing the Braves’ hopes. But a single to left field by Francisco Cabrera drove in Dave Justice and former Pirate Sid Bream with the winning runs.

The man who nearly threw out Bream at the plate would end his time in Pittsburgh just months later. Barry Bonds had won two MVPs with Pittsburgh, but would take his talents with him to San Francisco – signing with the Giants as a free agent in the off-season.

Not only was Bonds gone, but all hope would soon go away. The Pirates became a baseball also-ran. Not even the move out of Three Rivers Stadium (their home from 1971-2000) and into pristine PNC Park could spark an immediate turnaround.

It would take 21 years before Pittsburgh would witness a winning ball club. Manager Clint Hurdle and center fielder Andrew McCutchen were at the forefront of the Pirates’ 94-win season and a Wild Card berth. The one-game showdown for the right to play in the Division Series came at home against Cincinnati – and all the energy stored for more than two decades erupted in a raucous home-field advantage.

Pittsburgh prevailed over the Reds, but fell in five to the St. Louis Cardinals. However, McCutchen and company have made sure 2013 wouldn’t be a fluke – with another postseason appearance the very next season. The Pirates are once again a main attraction in Major League Baseball, playing at the best stadium around.
