Fellow NY Penn League enthusiast Zippy recently sent me an envelope full of Pirate/Black Bear goodness. My Black Bears were just average this year which was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting them to be god awful as they graduated about 90% of the team. Thankfully a couple of the international guys turned out to be really good and salvaged the season.
Deep down inside I think Zippy is a closet Black Bear/Pirate fan. Just look at this former list of Yankee catchers that would go on and play for the Pirates.

Don't fight it Kenny, I'll be happy to send you some Black Bear/Pirate swag.
Thanks for all the great cards Kenny. Let me know when you are ready for a 2015 Black Bears Championship shirt. All the cool kids have one.
