Hurdle, McCutchen lead Terrible Towel Twirl

Posted by Teresa Varley on October 20, 2013 – 3:30 pm

Pittsburgh Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle, who led the team to their first winning season and playoff appearance in 20 years, and Pirates All-Star centerfielder Andrew McCutchen led the Terrible Towel Twirl before the game, along with breast cancer survivors who were honored pregame.

“We are getting support from Steelers fans, but we are here to support the Steelers,” said Hurdle before the game. “This is a wonderful opportunity for Andrew and myself. We are giving back, throwing
support to Steelers Nation. We built up Buc Nation a little bit and that has been fun and exciting and now we are turning our purpose to help the Steelers out.”

McCutchen and Hurdle both wore Steelers jerseys for the Terrible Towel Twirl, and definitely succeeded in getting the crowd fired up.

“It’s great,” said McCutchen. “The support from all of the teams is unreal and the fans are the same.  It helps us come together as a city and as a team.”

    Hats off to Clint and Andrew, showing support for the Steelers in much the same way the Pens showed their support of the Buccos. Guys like you make us all PROUD TO BLEED BLACK AND GOLD. You give our beloved city and fans around the world reason to be proud of you on and off the field. No matter where I travel I find Steelers, Pirates and Penguins fans everywhere and we share a common bond instantly just like gentlemen like you who set the example of exactly how our teams will always support each other. PITTSBURGH PRIDE!!!!
