The Pittsburgh Pirates are the seventh most successful franchise in Major League Baseball (MLB) history with five World Series titles. However, the team hasn’t tasted glory in over four decades, with its most recent title coming in 1979.

The franchise originally started out as the Allegheny in 1882. The organization changed its name to the Pittsburgh Alleghenys when it joined the National League in 1887. The team has been known as the Pirates since 1891 and it competes in the National League’s Central Division.

A first World Series victory came in 1909 and a second in 1925 — the third win came much later, in 1960. There were two more World Series titles — in 1971 and 1979 — but no more have followed. The franchise won three successive East Division titles between 1990 and 1992.
