Pirate Fans: Dare We Say the Future Looks Bright?

The Pittsburgh Pirates took the day off and we have two great stories.  Lynchburg captures the title and Pedro goes off.  What a great day for Pirates fans everywhere.

Lynchburg swept Salem to win the Mills Cup.  Read all the details on the home of Hillcats baseball here. Shortstop Jordy Mercer, the pride of Oklahoma, went 4-for-5, with two RBI on the night.

Pop the corks and Congratulations!
