The Pittsburgh Pirates have shown a marked improvement in recent years as they, slowly but surely, make their way back to prominence. They have a long history of success in the MLB and are widely expected to get back to their best very soon.
The start of a voyage
The Pirates were formed in 1881 as the 'Alleghenys' and did not choose their current name till 1890. The name itself originated through a fight the team had with the Philadelphia Athletics on the ownership of a player. The Athletics called the actions of the team from Pittsburgh “Piratical,” a move that amused the Pirates so much that they adopted it as their new name.
The Pirates however, did not take too long to start challenging their opponents for all the top honors as they played in the very first World Series ever held, in 1903. Even though they lost, they made up for it only a few years later in 1909 by defeating Detroit in the finals and clinching the biggest prize in the sport for the first time in history. Since then they have won four more World Series titles and an additional nine pennants and division championships each.
