Prelude To Pittsburgh Finals History: The 1927 World Series

May 30, 2016

As the story goes, the Pittsburgh Pirates watched the awesome New York Yankees of 1927 take batting practice before the World Series and the sight of such greats as Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig hitting home run after home run intimidated them.

What the Pirates did not know is that the pitched balls were being grooved for the Yankees’ batters to hit out of sight. Whether that helped or not as the Yankees won the 1927 World Series in 4 straight games, we do not know.

However, with the upcoming Stanley Cup Final being the first in San Jose major North American sports league history, our history in finals turns to Pittsburgh in my next post.

Readers will see the 1927 Pittsburgh World Series loss to some say baseball’s greatest team, as a line in Pittsburgh finals history.
