A photo illustration commemorating the Pirates’ 1909 National League championship. The man in the water is Frank Chance, player-manager of the runner-up Chicago Cubs. On the plank is John McGraw, manager of the third-place New York Giants. And, oddly enough, the Pirates would best outfielder Davy Jones and the Detroit Tigers in the World Series that year. From the Library of Congress digital archives.
