My earliest memory of a Pirates player is Hank Greenberg. I remember (fondly) the Rickey-dinks; think the best years of the franchise ran from the late 50's to the late 70's under the ownership of the Galbreath family, and the leadership of Joe L. Brown, Bobby Bragan, Danny Murtaugh, Harry the Hat and others. Many evenings after classes at Pitt, I'd walk across Forbes Avenue and slip into the bleachers to watch the last few innings of a Pirates game. What I miss most? Hearing The Gunner, Bob Prince; The Possum, Jim Woods, and The Tiger, Don Hoak, call the games on a Summer night.
