Wednesday’s pierogi race at the Pittsburgh Pirates game featured one Slavic dumpling delivering a Stone Cold Stunner to another, and subsequently getting clotheslined by Scott Steiner.
One small Pirates fan at Monday’s game was sitting in a stroller and attacking his ice cream with vigor. His use of a spoon isn’t the most efficient, but his enthusiasm is admirable.
Diamondbacks Chief Baseball Officer Tony La Russa occupied the Pittsburgh Pirates’ TV broadcast booth during Tuesday’s game after play-by-play announcer Greg Brown said that La Russa had a history of retaliatory pitches during his managerial days. In today’s game, Brown defended his comments and criticized La Russa’s…
Tuesday’s lopsided Diamondbacks-Pirates game had drama. Arizona’s Jean Segura and Nick Ahmed and Pittsburgh’s David Freese were plunked within three frames, and the Diamondbacks’ chief baseball officer, Tony La Russa, invaded the Pirates’ TV broadcast booth to argue with the commentators about it.
Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was nailed in the head by a Jordan Lyles fastball in the second inning of today’s game against the Colorado Rockies. Vogelsong stayed down for several moments, before eventually being carted off the field while holding a towel to his face. A pinch runner came in for him, and…
Pittsburgh Pirates starter Gerrit Cole had a grand time at Game 4 of Capitals-Penguins Wednesday night. The pitcher was so relentless with his boos for the visiting team, security stepped in and told him to take it down a notch.
This proud papa is a Pirates fan, but he wasn’t too proud to celebrate the feat of hauling in Welington Castillo’s fourth-inning homer in Arizona tonight. Multitasking? Call me when he does it while holding a baby in one hand and a beer in the other.
The Major League Baseball campaign is underway and it started off gloriously. Not only did the St. Louis Cardinals lose to the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-1, but they struck out 14 times, like a bunch of jamokes. Here is a video highlighting Pirates starter Francisco Liriano’s impressive performance—he struck out…
A remarkable photo here from Pittsburgh Tribune-Review photographer Christopher Horner, capturing the split second a quick-thinking fan reached out and deflected a bat that appeared on a collision course for a kid’s face.
The 2016 “Legends Of Pittsburgh” cruise disembarked from Miami on Thursday, charting a course through the Keys, then eventually to Cozumel, Mexico. The Legends cruise promises, among other things, that guests can, “Hang at the pool, take selfies, and get autographs with your favorite Pittsburgh athletes!” These…
Jung-ho Kang’s first season with the Pittsburgh Pirates was cut short last September when Chris Coghlan ruthlessly slid into Kang’s leg, breaking it and tearing his MCL. Kang, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting, has spent all offseason rehabbing his leg, but isn’t sure if he’ll make it back by opening…
Buffalo Sabres coach Dan Bylsma was just trying to do something that happens hundreds of times a year at NHL games: tossing a puck that ended up in the bench area to a little kid in the crowd. This time, some self-important man decided to intervene.
Pirates infielder Sean Rodriguez got extremely heated during the brief dust-up that broke out during last night’s Cubs-Pirates wild card game. He was so dang mad that he pummeled a defenseless water cooler:
A day after the Astros advanced with a pitching performance as boring as it was dominating, the Cubs and Pirates figured out how to up the entertainment value even as Jake Arrieta shut Pittsburgh down: a fight!
Before the 2012 season, Major League Baseball changed the playoff format that had been in place for almost 20 seasons. Instead of four teams from each league advancing to the postseason, five now do with the two best non-division winners facing off in a one-game playoff to advance to the League Division Series.
It’s no longer the baseball preseason. Time to get your ass fired up for the regular fall season of America’s Pastime. Read all our playoff team previews here. Today, you’re getting to know … THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES.
The Rockies got the shit kicked out of them by the Pittsburgh Pirates at home last night, because that’s what happens when a very bad team (the shit-ass Rockies) plays against a very good team (the cool Pirates). The win also happened to clinch the Pirates a playoff berth, a fact the Rockies were curiously eager to…
Eight-year-old Pirates fan Dominic (sp?) held up a sign during last night’s Pirates game, in an attempt to get Starling Marte to give him a baseball for his birthday. Marte threw a ball in his direction, but another child grabbed it, which made little Dom sad. Poor Dom.
