Chuck Tanner, one of the most popular and upbeat managers ever in Major League Baseball, died at age 82 at his home in New Castle, Pennsylvania, where he had been in hospice care.

Tanner is best remembered for leading the “We Are Family” Pittsburgh Pirates in 1979 to one of the greatest comebacks in World Series history.

Always brimming with confidence, Tanner managed the Chicago White Sox, Oakland, Pittsburgh and Atlanta to a record of 1,352-1,381 from 1970-88. He won one division title and finished second five times.

Tanner had so much faith in the 1979 World Series when Pittsburgh fell behind the Baltimore Orioles who had a great offense and the best pitching in the majors, 3 games to 1. Facing elimination in Game 5 in Pittsburgh, Tanner led his team to the world championship comeback. Before Game 5, he awoke to find out his mother had died. He stayed to manage the Pirates on to sweep the final three games.

After his retirement from managing, he remained involved with the Pirates as a senior adviser to the general manager.
