In total, the five teams of Pittsburgh (Penguins, Pirates, Steelers, PITT Basketball and PITT Football) have 86 hall-of-fame athletes, included the likes of Mario Lemieux, Terry Bradshaw, Roberto Clemente, and Dan Marino. Together, these five teams have amassed 23 championships in their respective sports.
