After 10 seasons of being just a few plays away. After a seemingly lifelong amount of anguish for the fans.
Finally the Pirates have claimed the ultimate prize.
Defeating the Boston Red Sox 4 games to 2 in the season 11 world series.
AL MVP Ron Jacobs carried the sox on his back all season long and guided them to the series. But his bat proved to ultimately not be quite enough.
It was a extremely close series decided by 2 runs or less in all but 2 games.
The pirates won in dramatic fashion with a 9th inning walk off hit from SS Calvin Bowie. For the Red Sox it was more heartbreak, for the Pirates and owner eblake it was a long time coming.
Congratulations to your season 11 champions. THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES!!!
