Founded as the Alleghenys in 1882, they became the Pirates in 1887 and have been playing professional baseball ever since. The franchise has won five World Series championships (1909, 1925, 1960, 1971 and 1979) and nine National League pennants. The Pirates have also produced numerous Hall of Fame players including Roberto Clemente, Ralph Kiner, Willie Stargell and Bill Mazeroski. The team is currently owned by Bob Nutting who purchased it from Kevin McClatchy in 2007.
