Pittsburgh Pirates/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer just about any question about the Pirates or I can get you the answer. My knowledge goes back to the late 70s teams. If you have a question past that point, I will try my best to get you the answer.

Experience in the area

I live, eat, bleed baseball and the Pirates. I've been a Pirates fan since I was 7 (33 years ago!). I go to about 40 games a year and also travel to many games outside of Pittsburgh.


I grew up a Buccos fan.

2008-07-18 best player:

This is a very subjective question. If you asked 100 Pirates fans you would get a 100 different players listed.    In early years it would have to be Ralph Kiner, then Roberto Clemente, in the 70's Willie
