Pittsburgh babies are dressed as pirates (photos)

October 3, 2013

In Pittsburgh, they’re pretty stoked about the Pirates’ return to the playoffs.

So stoked, in fact, that St. Clair Hospital has dubbed its newborns “Bucco Babies” and dressed ’em up like pirates. (What? No eye patches?)

The good folks at St. Clair also tried to talk a little smack with St. Luke’s in St. Louis, but so far they aren’t dressing babies as cardinals, which probably would be dangerous.

The NL Central foes start their Division Series with a 5:07 p.m. EDT game today in St. Louis. Seriously, as Green Bay and Pittsburgh showed a few years back, what’s better than dueling infants?
