St. Clair Hospital is ensuring that the Pittsburgh area's newest Pirates fans won't have to wait their whole lives to celebrate postseason play.

Hospital staff are dressing St. Clair newborns in Pirates gear just minutes after they are born in the hospital's Family Birth Center.

Running throughout the postseason, doctors and nurses in the Family Birth Center are donning the newest "baby Buccos" with Pirates gear, including Onesies (bodysuits), red bandanas, and baby-sized baseball bats.

"We know that Pirates fans born after October 1992 have literally been waiting their whole lives to see the Battlin' Buccos in postseason play," said Linda McIntyre, director of the hospital's Women and Children Services, "so St. Clair Hospital wants to make sure that the newest generation of fans can join in on the celebration right now."

Hopefully, this is all after getting permission from parents. I know that I'd be peeved if I found out a hospital was using my newborn for free advertisement of a corporate entity.
