Dating back to 1970, the Pirates had two All Star Selections who made the All Star team in their only year with the Bucs.

Name them!

Brett and Gossage.

Sisyphus is a man of integrity. Not only did he not google the answer, he didn't even read ahead in the thread!

More integrity than you know. I formulated my answer, then Googled it up and saw that I was wrong, but I still posted my original half-right answer. Why? Integrity, my man; integrity. :lol:

And some folks here say that I never admit when I'm wrong.

Second guy was Ed Sprague, 1999.

He wasn't, really. But the Bucs had to have a representative. Kendall was out with an injury. Kevin Young put up some pretty good numbers but not as good as other 1b. Giles was in his first season of playing regularly, and had some competition from other OF. Even still, Sprague was not a good choice.

Spargue's numbers were pretty good the 1st half of the season...

I posted them earlier...Giles and Kendall should have made the team but Spargue earned it with his numbers...his 2nd half of the season just sucked awfully...

That all-star appearance had to be the highlight of his career. I might everybody he meets on the street he tells them about it.

Cam tried to sign Sprague to a long-term contract. Seriously.
