Pirates History

The 1910 Pittsburgh Pirates

The 1910 Pittsburgh Pirates

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.

Pirates History

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
