The Pittsburgh Pirates will hold their inaugural team Hall of Fame induction ceremony Saturday night and it should be fun.

I’ve been advocating for a Pirates Hall of Fame ever since I started covering baseball in 1988. I’m glad the idea has finally come to fruition.

Though younger fans probably won’t believe it, the 140-year-old franchise also has a rich history. The Pirates haven’t always been baseball’s punching bag. Seriously.

Sadly, just three of the 19 inductees are still living — Steve Blass, Bill Mazeroski and Dave Parker.
