More info on this amazing set:
"I lived through and covered the Pirates during that magical "We Are Family" season, and this DVD set brought all those great memories rushing back to me. Outstanding!" --Stan Savran of the Savran on SportsBeat show at Fox Sports FSN Pittsburgh.

Includes footage of the 1979 NLCS pennant clinching victory, interviews with players like Willie Stargell and Bill Robinson and much more.
Relive the Pirates 5th World Series triumph, when they rallied from a three-to-one deficit to defeat the Orioles.
SleeveStats are the perfect companion to the ultimate baseball DVD experience.
From the moment the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates first took the field, until they battled back to defeat the Baltimore Orioles in the 1979 World Series, "the Buccos" demanded attention and respect. The optimism of manager Chuck Tanner provided the perfect guidance to a team already led by the universally-respected Willie Stargell and ferocious hitting of Dave Parker. Galvanized by a family spirit, a crowd-pleasing song, and the shared fire to win, this team was marked by character, confidence, and a flair for dramatic victories.
Down three games to one, the Pirates provided a sudden plot change and stormed back to claim the 1979 World Series championship. Every game of this remarkable Fall Classic, every pitch, clutch hit, stellar pitching performance, and infectious smile of the Pirates is digitally preserved in this one-of-a-kind collectible.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, the rules are easy...all you have to do is send your interesting sports, entertainment, and odd news and tips to
I will then randomly choose one winner from the submissions to receive this week's prize. Winner announced next Friday, June 15.
