McCarthy Tapped to Take GM Duties for Pirates
Monday, September 9th, 1935
Life in Pittsburgh has been eventful of late. On the heels of a front office shakeup, the club has been pondering its future. Today, a local radio station reported that a deal has been reached with Steve McCarthy to become the new Pittsburgh general manager.

"We've been leaning in this direction for a while now," admitted a confidential source with the club, "But we had to evaluate all our options before going ahead. McCarthy brings a fresh outlook to the Pirates organization."
