Pirates president Frank Coonelly issued a statement on Wednesday, a day after his team's 4-3 loss to the Braves in Atlanta that included a highly controversial call in the 19th inning.
Jose Bautista doesn't know if the Pirates didn't have the money to spend or simply didn't want to spend the money they had.
"As the architect behind the 1960 and 1971 World Series teams, we were honored that Joe was able to return to Pittsburgh in June to help us celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1960 team," team president Frank Coonelly said in a statement. "The ovation he received prior to the game was a special moment for Joe and his family."
"Each of the last two years, we increased our debt," Coonelly told the AP in an interview last week concerning the financial statements. "That's not increased by taking out a new loan, there is an MLB credit facility we're involved in and we also have a local facility involved. We're comfortable with our debt level as it is, as are our banks. We meet with the banks on a regular basis and the banks are comfortable with our debt level."
