About this product
- DescriptionThe Bucs is the story of a baseball club. The word story is purposely used in lieu of the more common designation history. A baseball club rarely has a history in the strictest sense of the word. Instead, the record of its formation and growth more closely resembles a biography. Each club mirrors the character of those who nurtured its development and wore its uniforms. The Pittsburgh ball club is exception. Each generation of Pirate fans has been blessed with its own pantheon of god-like heroes: Honus Wagner, Pie Trayr, Ralph Kiner, Bill Mazeroski, Roberto Clemente, and Wille Stargell. The Bucs shows how Pittsburgh lost the '27 World Series to the Yankees in batting practice. It recalls the miracle of 1960 when Mazeroski electrified the nation with his Series-winning home run. The Bucs is a must for any baseball enthusiast.
- Author BiographyDr. John McCollister is an incurable baseball romantic. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, he has celebrated the Pirates during their years of glory and has moaned the times they struggled for survival. He brings to The Bucs a contagious enthusiasm not only for the Pirates but also for the glory of the game as it should be played. He lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.
