These Newborn Babies Are Pittsburgh Pirates Fans From Day 1, Literally

The Pittsburgh Pirates are in the MLB playoffs for the first time in 21 years. To say locals are excited would be an understatement.

Consider the staff at Pittsburgh’s St.Clair Hospital, who started dressing newborns in Pirates gear, complete with Pirates onesies, bandanas, and baby-sized baseball bats. The hospital tweeted this morning, "Starting today, we're ensuring the area's newest Pirates' fans won't have to wait their whole lives to celebrate postseason play."

These new fans -- now dubbed "Bucco Babies" -- are also a key weapon in trash talking. St.Louis, your move.
