Tekulve reflects on 40th anniversary of ’79 World Series

Local Sports

Former Pirates pitcher Kent Tekulve did what few people in the world can claim.

He recorded the final out of the 1979 World Series, as the Pirates defeated the Baltimore Orioles in seven games. It’s the last World Series the franchise has won.

On Sunday, Tekulve made a stop in Curve, Pa. and reflected on what that moment means to him and what he thinks about each time it’s brought up.
