Web exclusive! A century of Pittsburgh’s rich sports history is celebrated through the 50 greatest moments highlighted in this volume, culled from the coverage by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Among the storied past of athletics in the Pennsylvanian city, this collection recalls such events as the Pirates at the World Series, the Steelers' Super Bowls, the Penguins back-to-back Stanley Cup wins, the era when Carnegie “Tech” Duquesne and Pitt were all playing college bowls, and the boxing title bouts fought by Harry Greb, Teddy Yaroz, and Billy Conn. These moments and others from the wide spectrum of franchises and Hall of Fame athletes in Pittsburgh’s history are celebrated in a commemorative format that illustrates why Pittsburgh has earned the title of the “Best Sports City” more than once and why “City of Champions” has come to describe the town time and time again.
