    DescriptionThe 1970s were both successful and tragic for the Pittsburgh Pirates. They won five NL Eastern Division crowns and the 1971 World Championship, but lost the great Roberto Clemente in a plane crash and pitcher Bob Mosse in a car accident during this time. By the end of the 1970s, the Pirates were a good team, but no longer were considered favorites to win a World Series. Thanks to a fantastic finish in 1978, the Pittsburghers gained new hope for the 1979 season. As intriguing as the season was, it wasn't until the evening of August 25th that the Pirate fans really started to believe "it" could truly happen. The history of that magical ball club is covered here, from how the 1979 world champion team was built, to a thorough look at the season and post season, to how "The Family" finally fell. Also included are biographical sketches of each player who appeared on the team's roster that year and a section of complete statistics.
