PITTSBURGH (AP) — An usher who spent more than 80 years guiding Pittsburgh Pirates fans to their seats through varying stages of success and failure by the team has died.
Phil Coyne was 102. The team said Coyne died Friday.
Coyne began working for the Pirates in 1936.
For the next eight decades he served as a fixture in the stands as the franchise moved from Forbes Field to Three Rivers Stadium to PNC Park.
Pirates chairman Bob Nutting called Coyne a true legend.
