The Whistling Irishman:
Danny Murtaugh Remembered
by Colleen Hroncich; Foreword by Steve Blass

If you’re a Pirate fan of a certain age, you know exactly where you were when Maz hit the homerun that won the 1960 World Series. If you weren’t around then, you’ve heard your parents or grandparents reminisce about that magical season. Now you can know the inspiring story behind the man who led the Pirates out of the basement and into the spotlight. Through hustle, determination, and strength of character, Danny Murtaugh scraped his way out of poverty and became a two-time World Championship manager. He was universally admired and respected by all who knew him – as a baseball player and manager, as a soldier in World War II, as a neighbor in his hometown. How did this boy who was so small that no uniform fit him become the man who instilled a culture of winning in the Pirates? Find out in The Whistling Irishman: Danny Murtaugh Remembered. Packed with memories from family, friends, teammates, players, and fans, The Whistling Irishman will delight baseball fans of any age.
