In 1887, the Pittsburgh team was named the Alleghenies. In December of 1889 they changed their name to the Pirates.

So the answer would be, no one hit a Homer for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1887.

You probably weren't looking for a trick answer so I'll take a real guess for the first Home Run for the Pittsburgh team in 1887

Fred Carroll, led the team with 6 that year, he could have hit the first.<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by bucsfan04 on Fri Apr 02, 2004 8:50 pm EST.</span>
