The optimism of manager Chuck Tanner provided the perfect guidance to a team already led by the universally-respected Willie Stargell and the ferocious hitting of Dave Parker. Galvanized by a family spirit, a crowd-pleasing song, and the shared fire to win, this team was marked by character, confidence, and a flair for dramatic victories.
Down three games to one, the Pirates provided a sudden plot change and stormed back to claim the 1979 World Series championship. Every game of this remarkable Fall ClassicÂ®, every pitch, clutch hit, stellar pitching performance, and infectious smile of the Pirates is digitally preserved in this one-of-a-kind collectible.
