Each week, we’ll feature a great “Bucco Blast” from the Pirates’ past… in .GIF form.
Last week, we showed you Roberto Clemente‘s pivotal home run in Game 7 of the 1971 World Series. Now, here’s another Pirates’ legend, Willie Stargell, crushing a two-run bomb in Game 7 of the ’79 Series:
Leader of the ‘We Are Family’ squad, Pops went 4-for-5 in the game as the Bucs won, 4-1, giving the team its fifth world title. Stargell was also the MVP of the series, hitting .400 with seven extra-base hits and seven RBI over the seven games.
125 days until Opening Day.
