9781600787621: 50 Great Moments in Pittsburgh Sports: From the Flying Dutchman to Sid the Kid

A century of Pittsburgh's rich sports history is celebrated through 50 greatest moments in this volume, culled from the coverage by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Among the storied past of athletics in the Pennsylvanian city, this collection highlights such events as the Pirates at the World Series; Steelers' Super Bowls; the Penguins with their back-to-back Stanley Cups; the era when Carnegie "Tech" Duquesne, and Pitt were all playing college bowls; and boxing title bouts fought by Harry Greb, Teddy Yaroz, and Billy Conn. These moments and others from the wide spectrum of franchises and Hall of Fame athletes in Pittsburgh's history are celebrated in a commemorative format that illustrates why Pittsburgh has earned the title of the "Best Sports City" more than once and why "City of Champions" has come to describe the town time and time again.
