The Pittsburgh Pirates began playing in the National League in 1882. They
appeared in the very first World Series in 1903.
The Pirates have been a regular contender over the years, but have had a
tough time in recent years. The team has brought in a lot of new talent
and promises improvement. They play their home games in what many feel is
the finest ballpark there is.
Who could forget Bill Mazeroski's dramatic home run in the bottom of the
ninth inning to win the final game of the 1960 World Series against the
dreaded Yankees at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh.
There hasn't been a team, not just in baseball, but in all of the major sports leagues, which has struggled as much as the Pittsburgh Pirates have in the last two decades. Last season they only won 57 games, and as is the case so often with bad teams, for years all of the best young players have slipped through their fingers and other bad personnel moves have been made.
But in 2011, things are actually looking bright for the team. They are battling out in the NL Central and could potentially finish at or above .500 for the first time in forever. Pittsburgh Pirates tickets are actually starting to become interesting items around town, and why not, with the beautiful stadium and the young talent finally emerging.
The team's improved play has to begin with Andrew McCutchen, the versatile center fielder and speedster. Hometown first baseman Neil Walker has been playing well to start 2011, and the pitching staff is also showing promise.
Without any big names, guys like Paul Maholm, Kevin Correia and Charlie Morton are putting up solid numbers and keeping the Pirates in games late. For fans of the Pirates and those who have been faithfully buying Pirates tickets in losing efforts over the years, that's all you can ask for right now. But the promise is there for great improvement in the future as well, and that's even better.
