The regular season ended in Australia on Saturday, but two Pittsburgh Pirates will continue on into the playoffs. Here's a recap from the last two days of action. The next winter article will be next Sunday, with a recap for the week. Then once all of the Pirates are done for the winter, we will do a full winter recap.
Robbie Glendinning will be part of the playoffs with the Perth Heat. He had a tough final week, but still finished the regular season with strong numbers at the plate. However, he committed four errors over the final four games, dropping him down to a .945 fielding percentage at shortstop in 21 games. At the plate, he went 2-for-11, with a walk, run scored and an RBI over the weekend. That gave him a final slash line of .333/.408/.506 in 98 plate appearances.

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.
