Two members of the 60 Pirates also won a second WS as fellow team members of a different team.  Who are they, what other team and year of the second win?  What is significant about one of their numbers?

Believe it or Not!  In 1959 the Pirates almost traded Dick Groat for Roger Maris.

Clemente-21  and Mazeroski-9 in 1971. Both numbers are retired. The Clemente wall is 21 feet high.

You caught me Roberto.  That is a good answer but my question was not really clear.  See the edited version of the question above.  You get points for your answer anyway and double if you get the correct answer from above.

I think Dick Groat went on to a Cardinals team that won. No idea otherwise.

Scratch Bobby Shantz, and substitute Dog Face, Bob Skinner as the 2nd member of the 1960 Pirates WS Team to appear in the 1964 WS with the Redbirds Cool

You got half the answer correct in Groat and Skinner.  How about the second half of the question?  Maybe the third time is a charm for ya!  Cool

P.S.  Shantz pitched for the Yankees in the 60 series and did not join the Bucs til 1961.  But he did not pitch for the Cards in the 64 series.

Yes and No!  So Groat did but what about Skinner?  Try again.

I will have mercy on you.  This is too hard a question.  Yes, Skinner wore #4 as a Pirate.  And was also Ralph Kiner's number which is now a retired Pirate number.

More Trivia!  In the last question, it was noted that Bob Skinner wore #19 with the Cards from  1964-1966.  Skinner had two teammates on the 1960 Bucs who also spent time with the Cards during their careers and also wore #19 with the Cards.  Can you name them?

That would be Rocky Nelson and Dick Schofield! They both wore the #19 when playing with the Redbirds

Rocky in 1951
Ducky in 53-58

Thanks Possum! I appreciate it. I was missing the mark totally on the #4 and its significance to Pirate Baseball. Sorry about that, but I enjoyed the trivia question. Love Pirates Trivia and would welcome a question any time. It stimulates my 61 yr old brain Cool
Beat'em Bucs!!!
