50 Great Moments in Pittsburgh Sports

"Every Pittsburgh sports fan needs to read this book."
— Pirates legend Bill Mazeroski

From the Flying Dutchman to Sid the Kid, there is a reason Pittsburgh is known as the "City of Champions." Fans have become accustomed to success in this sports-crazed town, which has an unprecedented legacy of winning for a city of its size. Consider the Steelers' NFL-leading six Lombardi Trophies, the Pirates' five World Series titles, the Penguins' three Stanley Cups - and that's just the beginning. Over the last century, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has enthusiastically reported on this sporting success, creating a comprehensive collection of eyewitness accounts that are a delight to read, even years later. This all-new book, by Post-Gazette Executive Editor David Shribman and Richard "Pete" Peterson, compiles 50 of the most memorable moments, starting with the Pirates' first World Series win and culminating with Pittsburgh (appropriately) being named North America's No. 1 sports city by by The Sporting News.
