THE STORY OF THE PIRATE PARROT
The Pirate Parrot is the mascot of the Pittsburgh Pirates, debuting in
1979. He is a large green parrot who wears a Pirates jersey and cap.
The character of a parrot was derived from the classic story Treasure
Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, most notably the one owned by
Long John Silver named "Captain Flint". He is often seen dancing on
the dugouts and sitting on some fans; not to mention shaking his large
green belly.

The original Pirate Parrot, Kevin Koch, was a key contributor to the
Pittsburgh drug trials, buying cocaine and introducing it to several
players, and even going as far as introducing the players to the drug
dealers he bought the cocaine from. The Pirates kept the Pirate
Parrot mascot after Koch's role as the Pirate Parrot ended due to the
drug trials.
