After winning their first World Series title in 1909, the Pirates could manage just a third place finish the following year. Led by the hitting of Honus Wagner, the managing and play of Fred Clarke, and a strong pitching staff, Pittsburgh still won 86 games against just 67 defeats. The offense that season was near the middle of the pack, finishing fourth with 655 runs scored. The pitching staff had a 2.83 ERA, good for third in the league, while the team finished with the third best fielding percentage in the NL, all leading to a third place finish overall, 17 games back of the first place Chicago Cubs. On this page, we have the links for the 1909 Pirates page, as well as the 1909-10 off-season moves, the full 1910 season recap, and then bios for any player that has been covered already in our daily “This Date in Pirates History” column. This page will be updated as new bios are written, until all 33 players who put on a Pirates uniform during the 1910 season are covered. Currently 30 have been finished.
