Regular visitors of Notinhalloffame.com know that we are slowly working on the top 50 of every major team in the NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB. Once that is done, we intend to look at how each team honor their past players and executive. As such, it is news to us that the Pittsburgh Pirates have announced that they will be creating their own franchise Hall of Fame in 2020.
It was also announced their Steve Blass will be part of the Pirates’ inaugural Hall of Fame Class.
Blass played ten seasons for Pittsburgh where the Pitcher posted a record of 103-76 and earned a World Series Ring in 1971. Following his playing career, he would become a broadcaster for the team, which began in 1983, a role he still has today.
It is unknown at this time whether or not Blass will be joined by others in the inaugural class, but we suspect there will be more.
The Hall of Fame will be located at PNC Park.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Steve Blass for this prestigious honor and the Pittsburgh Pirates for establishing this institution.
