The Pittsburgh Pirates have developed an incredible history that dates all the way back to their first season in the National League in 1887. The Pirates won their first World Series title in 1909 and won their second in 1925. After struggling for the next couple of decades, Pittsburgh made it back to the World Series in 1960 and defeated the New York Yankees to earn their third World Series title. The franchise had their most successful run in the 1970s. During this impressive stretch, the Pirates advanced to six National League Championship Series and two World Series appearances. Pittsburgh defeated the Baltimore Orioles in both of their World Series trips which occurred in 1971 and 1979. The 1979 Pirates team adopted the phrase “We Are Family” after the hit song by the same name from Sister Sledge. Hall of Fame outfielder Roberto Clemente played a huge role in the 1960 and 1971 championship while Willie Stargell impacted the Pirates in the 1979 World Series victory. The Pirates again peaked in the early 1990s as they advanced to the NLCS three straight seasons, but came up short in each series. After many down seasons in the 1990s and 2000s, the organization has peaked in recent years behind perennial All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen.
