Joe L. Brown, the general manager who built World Series champions with the Pirates in 1960 and 1971, died Sunday in an assisted living facility in Albuquerque, N.M., where he spent the final days of his life near the home of his daughter Cindy, Pirates' officials said. He would have been 92 on Sept. 1.

Brown, who resided in Newport Beach, Calif., was in Pittsburgh in June for a reunion of the 1960 Pirates team at PNC Park. He had suffered from an extended illness and was confined to a wheelchair at that time.

Mr. Pirate. It was nice to see him in June for the Anniversary of the 1960 team. I will always associate him with the great Pirate teams.
Goodbye Mr. Brown.

It was really great that he was able to be a part of the anniversary celebration. Seemed like he knew that was the last public appearance he'd make. RIP
