Pittsburgh Pirates Postseason History
The city of Pittsburgh has a history of success in sports, and the Pittsburgh Pirates are no exception. With years of playoff experience under their belts, the Pirates do a good job of carrying on the city’s legacy when it comes to playoff sports. Thanks to some of the best players in baseball wearing Pirates uniforms in October, the team has been a treat to watch when the games matter most.
The early 1990s saw the Pirates as fixtures in the postseason, where they played for the National League pennant on multiple occasions. The team was managed by Jim Leyland, a man who embodies playoff success given how many places he went and had success in his career. And Leyland’s managing ability was complemented by some elite players, including one of the best in the history of the game in Barry Bonds.
Bonds was young when he was a part of the Pirates’ postseason teams of the 1990s, as his career spanned for well over a decade after playing for those teams. But Bonds managed to hit his first career postseason home run for the Pirates in the 1992 National League Championship Series, which was the first of his many career blasts in the playoffs.
Of course, no discussion of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the playoffs is complete without mentioning the team’s rivalry with the Atlanta Braves. The Pirates and Braves squared off in back-to-back National League Championship Series in 1991 and 1992, with both series going the full seven games. Atlanta won both of those series, with both teams bringing the best out of each other in what was a heated competition between the two squads, with World Series spots on the line in both encounters.
The 2010s saw the Pirates get back to the playoffs, thanks to the exciting young teams that Pittsburgh had put together. Those teams were led by electric center fielder Andrew McCutchen. A five-tool player with talent on both offense and defense, McCutchen hit over .300 in the playoffs for the Pirates, and propelling them to a Wild Card round win over the Reds in 2013, the year McCutchen also won National League Most Valuable Player honors.
