Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates play in the Central Division of the National League, and are five-time World Series champions in Major League Baseball. The franchise joined the National League in its sixth season in 1887 and won three National League titles from 1901 to 1903, playing in the very first World Series in 1903 and winning their first World Series in 1909 behind Honus Wagner.

The Pirates have had many ups and downs during their long history, most famously winning the 1960 World Series on a game winning homerun by Bill Mazeroski, the only time that Game 7 of the World Series has ever ended with a home run. They also won the 1971 World Series behind Roberto Clemente and the 1979 World Series under the slogan "We Are Family", led by "Pops" Willie Stargell. Overall the Pirates have won five World Series and lost two. After a run of regular-season success in the early 1990s, the Pirates have struggled in recent decades, with 20 consecutive losing seasons to date, the longest in North American professional sports history.
