The Pittsburgh Pirates won their sixth straight game Wednesday, beating the Mariners in Seattle with Felix Hernandez on the mound, no less. The win moved the Pirates to 48-30 and into a first-place tie with the Cardinals in the National League Central. The clubs share the best record in all of baseball.
Pirates fever is, apparently, sweeping all of baseball as these two enthusiastic young Pittsburgh fans were caught on camera at Camden Yards in Baltimore during Wednesday night’s Indians/Orioles game. Hey we’re lost, the Pirates are playing well … it’s a funny enough joke for a couple of kids to come up with.
The star of this clip is the thoroughly unimpressed Orioles’ fan seated in the background, sprawled out across two rows of seats yawning as the two kids flash their homemade Pirates’ sign. Well played, sir. Well played indeed.
