Bing And The Pirates

I love that Bing owned my home baseball team - The Pittsburgh Pirates for a long time. Here are some pics of Bing showing support for the Pirates:

An interesting collection.

One of the recurring themes of jokes in the radio shows of the earlier period of Bing's ownership was of guests mocking Bing in a variety of ways about how poorly the Pirates were performing. Did they in fact have a poor record in Bing's ownership?

Re: Bing And The Pirates

Just a little history, The Pittsburgh Pirates were formed in 1887, and Bing bought a controlling interest with a group of other businessmen in 1946. From 1946 to 1958, the Pirates had only one winning season in 1948. The Pirates though won the World Series in 1960.
