The Pittsburgh Pirates 1979 World Series( Visual )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1979 World Series was a rematch of sorts: in 1971, the Orioles won the first two games only to lose to the Pirates in seven. The 'Oriole Magic' of '79 was a team with intelligence, strong fundamentals, and guile who pitched well, made key plays, hit in the clutch, came from behind, and won games in unusual ways. The Pirates key ingredient was 38-year-old Willie "Pops" Stargell, whose clubhouse demeanor, simple good-heartedness, and friendly manner helped keep the Pirates loose. His three home runs led to his becoming the oldest player to win both the regular season and World Series MVP. Adopting "We Are Family" by the Philadelphia disco group Sister Sledge as a theme song, Pirates vs. Orioles history would repeat itself, as the Bucs came back from a three games to one deficit to win the 1979 Series in seven
