The Nineteenth Year: A Sweet Summer with the Pittsburgh Piratesby Michael E. Lowenstein
In 1971, when he was fourteen years old, Michael Lowenstein spent the summer watching Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell and the Pittsburgh Pirates on their way to a World Series. Forty years later, in honor of that team, he committed to go to forty games to watch a Pirate team that had just finished its eighteenth losing season in a row. The Nineteenth Year tells the story of those two seasons, the world championship Pirates of 1971 and the surprisingly inspiring Pirates of 2011. This is a story of loyalty, passion and hope, and, most of all, of baseball and family.
