The Pittsburgh Pirates Need Racing Pierogies For Next Season

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

The Pittsburgh Pirates need pierogies for next season. It's one of those odd baseball traditions, mascots racing around the diamond. Lots of teams have them. There are Milwaukee Sausages, D.C.'s Presidents. But nothing warms my heart more than a bunch of sprinting pierogies with faces. I think I'm going to audition for this job.
