I know who the bottom one is, the top one doesn't look remotely familiar.

How about Richie Zisk for the top guy?

Nope, none correct yet. Scott Little is a great guess tho.

Richie Zisk -- was he still with the Bucs when the uniforms were changed? I can't picture him in a black or yellow uni. Or those crazy fat pinstripes.

Top one reminds me of Rod Scurry (but why would he be swinging a bat?)
Bottom one is a young Lee Mazzilli wearing a fake mustache.

No, Richie Zisk played with us before 1977 when the uniforms changed.

OK, I'll take a shot on the bottom one. Tony Armas, Sr.?

Ollie, I thought of Scurry as well, but he batted left handed.

I should've added this -- the players are *obscure* Pirates, meaning with the Bucs for a very short period of time. Cuppa coffee guys.

Didn't we have a guy by the name of Renteria that fit the description of the bottom one?

I'll go off the deep end on the bottom one and say Onix Concepcion.

The only photo I can find of Renteria he doesn't have a mustache. You might still be right, though.

Ding! Rich Renteria, a September 1986 call-up.

Great obscure Pirate. Played all of ONE game for the Bucs, Opening Day 1987. Here's a still from the Mets' TV broadcast of the game:

Good job, df.

That top one is driving me nuts. Seems so familiar somehow...

Dave- can you give us a hint on the top one as to position? Looks like Jason Thompson or Frobel maybe, but they were both left handed.

How's this for a hint -- I *think* he was a middle infielder ... but he never played the field during his brief tenure with the Bucs.
