It ended as a good night for Pirates fans, with the team taking an 8-2 win over the Giants.
Frank Coonelly, the president of the Pittsburgh Pirates, was sentenced Friday for his arrest in December 2011 on driving under the influence charges.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have been playing baseball in this town for 126 years; yet this year, something feels a little bit different.
Pittsburgh Pirates president Frank Coonelly is facing driving under the influence charges after he was reportedly pulled over in Ross Township late last year.
Frank Coonelly had to be relieved. For the first time since he came to town, the Pirates president could talk about his club sitting over .500 this late in a season. With the Pirates 39-38 near the end of June, the morale boost in the stands and offices at PNC Park is noticeable.
Is this the season the Pirates finally turn things around? There is certainly a lot of promise as the Pirates started the season on the road with a 4-2 record.
