50th Anniversary of the 1960 World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates

Since it was such a nice day I needed an excuse to get on the bike and take some photos.  I found one.  The 50th Anniversary of the 1960 World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates in Oakland.  Every year people gather at the old Forbes field and relive the good old days.  This year was special because it was the 50th Anniversary, so I decided what the heck.  It was a bit boring for me, but the weather was awesome so I'll forgive the die-hard Pittsburgh Pirate fans that came out to celebrate.
