Pirates’ fans gave the team an impressive welcome home to PNC Park Thursday night.
A kid on the hill is unhittable, Pedro breaks out of a slump to driving in the winning run, the hometown kid flips to first for the final out, and 20 years of mediocrity and worse is over.
“We’ve been waiting 20 years, we are the Pirate fans. Hey!” Playing on a front porch in West Kittanning, a band celebrates the end of a regrettable 20-year losing streak for the Pittsburgh Pirates
Smiles all around as the Pirates high-fived their way off Miller Field Tuesday night, able to accomplish what 20 Pirates teams before them had not, a guaranteed .500 season.
