10 of Our Favorite Pop Culture Pirates

9. Pittsburgh Pirates

While the Pittsburgh Pirates haven’t exactly had a successful past, their rich history is full of hope. They played in the first World Series, winning five games and losing two. They were the first Major League Baseball team to be broadcasted over the radio, the first to draft players from India, and the first to win a World Series off a home run, as well as many other notable achievements. With 19 consecutive losing seasons, the Pittsburgh Pirates hopefully have better days ahead, especially now that they’ve earned a spot on our list.
