A Look At Pittsburgh Past, Toward Greatness

It was quite the memorable scene along the Allegheny River, near the confluence, this weekend. At the temporarily docked LST 325, men such as Stanley Barish evoked the Pittsburgh that was the nation's muscle, strong enough to flex worldwide. A few yards to the northeast, meanwhile, champions such as Dick Groat (perhaps the finest athlete in the history of Pittsburgh sports) honored teammate Bill Mazeroski, men exceptional enough to rekindle glory associated with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
