Behind the Steel Curtain

The 2018 World Series is underway featuring the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox.

The City of Boston has enjoyed plenty of success with all four of its major professional sports teams having won championships in the past ten years. Pittsburgh enjoyed similar success four decades ago. In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pittsburgh native Pete Peterson explains why a World Series win is more fulfilling for him than a Super Bowl title.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, co-author with his son Stephen, of  The Slide: Leyland, Bonds and the Star-Crossed Pittsburgh Pirates and editor of  The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
