The Pittsburgh Pirates are the major league baseball team of Pittsburgh. They play in the Central Division of the National League and are five time World Series Champions. They are commonly referred to as the “bucs” or “buccos” which is derived from “buccaneer”, a synonym to “pirate.” The Pirates joined the National League in its sixth season in 1887 making them one of the oldest teams in the MLB. The Pirates have experienced 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 homerun. The Pirates are loved by Pittsburghers and play in PNC Park, a beautiful facility nestled right across the river from the dramatic Pittsburgh skyline.
