The Bucs is the story of a baseball club.

The word “story” is purposely used in lieu of the more common designation “history.” A baseball club rarely has a history in the strictest sense of the word. Instead, the record of its formation and growth more closely resembles a biography. Each club mirrors the character of those who nurtured its development and wore its uniforms.

The Pittsburgh ball club is no exception.

Each generation of Pirate fans has been blessed with its own pantheon of god-like heroes: Honus Wagner, Pie Traynor, Ralph Kiner, Bill Mazeroski, Roberto Clemente, and Wille Stargell.

The Bucs shows how Pittsburgh lost the ʼ27 World Series to the Yankees in batting practice. It recalls the miracle of 1960 when Mazeroski electrified the nation with his Series-winning home run.
The Bucs is a must for any baseball enthusiast.
