For the next team in my Retired Numbers Series, I was at a bit of a loss over which team to cover. So, I decided to take my dad’s suggestion and cover his favorite team growing up, the Pittsburgh Pirates.

I lived in Pittsburgh when I was little, and tried to become a Pirates fan. Unfortunately, it was at the height of the recent struggles, which made it very difficult for a young fan to maintain interest.

I root for other teams now, but I still have a respect for the Pirates, as they were my dad’s team growing up. They seemed like as good a team as any to continue my series.

On to the analysis.
