The Pittsburgh Pirates are one of the oldest teams in the National League. The franchise was established in 1887 as the Pittsburgh Allegheny and this franchise has created a roster full of great hitters with efficiency similar to the nearby mills producing sheets of steel that established the city. Since the start of the 20th century, the Pirates franchise has already produced 25 baseball batting champions and 36 Hall of Famers who wore the Pirates jersey. The first use of the Pirates name occurred in 1891 and this is attributed to the alleged hijacking of a single player who was under contract of the state-rival, Philadelphia Athletics.
The first success in their franchise came in 1901 to 1903 when they won three consecutive NL pennants. In these three years, the best was the 1902 roster which won 103 games. The first World Series was represented by the Pirates for the NL 1903 wherein they lost to Boston Red Sox. They reached the NL pennant again in 1909 and this time, they captured their first World Series title by defeating the Detroit Tigers. After this successful season, the Pirates saw a decline in its performance and in the league standing, but in the 1920s, the team started to win again. In 1925 and 1927 they captured the NL pennant again and won the 1925 World Series against the Washington Senators. In three to four decades, the team was in the middle of the pack with a so-so record, but in 1960, the Pirates emerged by capturing the NL pennant and winning their third World Series titles against the NY Yankees. The 1970s also showed the prowess of the Pirates winning the 1971 and 1979 World Series championships. This was the last title for the Pirates. Currently, they are playing in the East Division of NL and have not won any division title there.
The Pirates play their home games at the PNC Park. This ballpark features a two-deck design, which is the first to be built in the country. The stadium also features an intimate layout with optimal sight lines. PNC Park is the fifth ballpark for the Pirates and the construction cost was about $262 million. The wall in the outfield is 21 feet high and behind the right field. This separation is made in honor of Roberto Clemente, a legendary right fielder who wore Jersey #21.
