We Pittsburgh fans expected your cover to be a picture of Ron Fimrite eating the Oct. 18 issue of SI.

I congratulate William Leggett on his fine article. It was some kind of a comeback, and I think the 1971 Series showed the baseball world just who is really No. 1—the Pittsburgh Pirates.

My congratulations on a fine article. But while you mentioned Clemente's feats, you failed to give enough recognition to Catcher Manny Sanguillen, who collected 11 hits to Roberto's 12 for the Series. It was Sanguillen's plate-to-first speed that gave the Bucs many of their clutch singles, and his strong arm prevented base stealing by the Bufords and the Blairs.
