THE WORLD CHAMPION PITTSBURGH PIRATES

The season when the familiar ""Play ball"" is again current is right around the corner. But for the Pittsburgh Pirate fans there'll never be another season to match last year, when the lowly Pirates rose in their wrath with bats swinging to defeat the invincible Yankees in the ninth inning of the last and seventh game. Many will enjoy reliving that exciting series, knowing more of the players who gave Pittsburgh their first victory since 1927. This is told against the story of the Pirates from back in 1876, their great and near great players, managers and officers. Dick Groat, selected as the Most Valuable Player in the National League teams, and a sports writer, Bill Surface, have told the Pirates' story effectively and dramatically. This is worth the price of a ticket, for the fans.
