As covered here yesterday, the Pittsburgh Pirates took game seven of the 1909 World Series, bringing home their first World Series title. They were dominating during the regular season, winning 110 games, a franchise record. During the postseason, they relied on the pitching of an unlikely hero, Babe Adams, who made just twelve starts all season, but in the series he won all three of his starts.
The season and the series were covered in great detail here. This article is a recap of everything that happened from the off-season until the last pitch of the postseason, put into one place for easy access of the entire story. I have also included links below to any player, who has already been covered on this site, either on their birth date in a previous “This Date in Pirates History” column, or in an individual bio. When new players are added on the site, I will add the links to this post. Currently, 25 of the 29 players have been covered on here.
