So i was having a pretty good birthday today until i found out. The #2 most recognized pittsburgh sports figure behind hines ward (as voted on 96.1) passed away today. If you have ever been to a penguins game or pirates game you know this man, no, legend.
Forever in our hearts, LEEEEEEEEMMMOOOOOONNNADDDEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYY!
And these guys don't leave because they make great extra money by going to every home game. Going to baseball games and getting paid to do so is unbelievably satisfying.
It's also a matter of tradition for some guys. It becomes something that you get so used to doing every summer, that you cannot imagine may-october without it. Sounds bizarre, but its actually a difficult job to let go of.
