One thing will get a fanbase warmed up in the dead of winter–a Caravan.
It’s crazy how exciting the opportunity to get an autograph from your baseball hero can be, so we grabbed a few stories from Pirates 2011 Caravan.
Pirates stud CF Andrew McCutchen got a taste of the other team in Pittsburgh recently….
McCutchen was at Heinz Field on Sunday when the Steelers secured a trip to Super Bowl XLV:
"”I was at the last Steelers game, and that place was absolutely nuts. We know the fans are there, and they just want to see us win, and we are looking forward to doing our best to help the team be able to become a part of the city’s winning tradition again.”–Andrew McCutchen"
Pittsburgh Pirates President Frank Coonelly has some exciting quotes in this story, including this one:
"“The next wave, you will see some, if not the majority of that at some point at PNC Park in the 2011 season, are the young arms that really dominated the Eastern League last year”—Frank Coonelly"
