Pirates to add Mazeroski statue to PNC Park


That’s the big news today. As much as I’d love for it to be of him turning a double play (I can’t be the only one that wants to see this, can I?), I nominate this image from above, which I’ve always liked more than the famous home plate mob scene. For my money, no picture better embodies what the relationship between Pittsburgh and the Pirates can and should be.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
