But for the segment of folks who continued to identify themselves as Pirates fans throughout the two-decade journey to redemption, seeing their belief that winning baseball would again be played in Pittsburgh one day come to fruition represents an entirely different story. It's a story of perpetual optimism, of loyalty, and of loving a team like family.
Buc to Good: The Trials, Tribulations and Triumph of Being...and Staying...a Pittsburgh Pirates Fan Through the '90s and 2000's is the story of these fans, as told by one of them. From the low of the '92 NLCS loss, to the "didn't think it could get any worse" years that followed, to the euphoria of the '13 Wild Card Game, Buc to Good touches all the bases on each true Pirates fan's emotional ride to seeing their team return to prominence.
