1965-9 Bucs

Long-time reader, but this is my first post here. I've been a Pirate fan since the early 1950s. I got to meet both Clemente and Bob Prince before a game against the Mets at the Polo Grounds in 1961. I ended up going to Pitt in 1965 and was on the staff of the campus radio station for all 4 years - the final two as Sports Director. I got to know nearly everyone in Pittsburgh sports, but had a real good relationship with the Bucs and often spent some time in the clubhouse or in the dugout before games. If anyone has any questions about any of the guys on those teams or the Gunner, I'll try to answer them. Some I was a lot friendlier with than others. Obviously tough to see how badly the franchise has fallen off in the past two decades. Have to hope better days are ahead!
