Vintage West Virginia: Pirates at Watt Powell

Former Charleston Charlies in town for the Pittsburgh Pirates vs. International League All-Star Game. First row: Craig Reynolds, Art Howe, Willie Randolph, Larry Demery, Frank Taveras. Back row: Richie Zisk, John Candelaria, Kent Tekulve, Bruce Kison, Dave Parker. Missing: Rennie Stennent, Ramon Hernandez. The All-Stars jumped on the slump-ridden Pirates, who had lost 11 of 12 of their last games, and pounded out a 5-2 victory before a crowd of 5,167 at Watt Powell Park. Bob Moose, who was a Pirate and was sent down to Charleston, was given a chance to start for the Pirates to see if he belonged back in the majors. He failed to impress, giving up five runs (three unearned) in the five innings he pitched. Aug. 18, 1975, photo by William Tiernan.
