This is a love story. It's a collection of tales about a life-longrelationship between the Pittsburgh Pirates and its fans. The story of the five-timeWorld Championship team overflows with anecdotes and illustrations that tell usa great deal about the team, about the city, and about the people who callPittsburgh their home. In a sense, the history of the Pirates is a mirror imageof the people who were schooled in the "steel-mill mentality." The Pirates have been blessed over the past 100-plus years with acolorful cast of characters who have never been shy about revealing their truefeelings. From Babe Adams to Joe Cronin to Roberto Clemente, and on to John Candelaria,Danny Murtaugh, and Willie Stargell, the players and coaches profiled sharewith their fans a focus on never giving up until the last out is recorded. Somestories will make readers laugh, some will bring a tear, and all are endlesslyfascinating. This book is a must-have for fans of the Bucs, and fans of stellarbaseball writing.
