The Pirates considered 2018 to be a rebuilding year. So naturally they are approaching the 1/3 mark of the season in first place. Now they are bringing up one of their top prospects in a year that could be one to remember.

While we are at it, enjoy the In Memoriam video.
I kneel respectfully at the spot where Mazeroski’s homer cleared the wall that clinched the 1960 World Series for the Pirates.
That was the first time a World Series ended with a homer. Later that year, Joe Carter was the second to do it.
The spot is on the campus of University of Pittsburgh. My dad took the picture.
Now part of one of the student union buildings at the University of Pittsburgh, Forbes Field’s home plate is preserved and protected. Bill Mazeroski jumped on this spot and there was bedlam in 1960. Now it is a little more quiet… at least it was in 1993 when my dad took this picture of me.
