Default Re: Lanny Frattare's Voice Synonymous With Pirates Baseball

I remember when he and Milo Hamilton took over from The Gunner. We couldn't stand Hamilton, and thought he was a pompous ass; but we liked the kid. Those first few years were heady stuff I'm sure, with the Bucs making late season rushes in '77 and '78, and winning it all in '79.

Lanny has stuck with the Pirates through thick and thin. I'm sure if you cut him his blood would run black and gold, and the current statae of affairs must really rankle him, behind the scenes. It would be nice for us to contend just one more time before he retires.
