The Pittsburgh Pirates held a moment of silence for Mac Miller before their game Monday -- honoring the late rapper with a tribute video on the PNC Park jumbotron.

Starling Marte, Colin Moran and the rest of the Pirates squad paused for a minute to honor Mac -- a Pittsburgh native who died of an apparent overdose earlier this month.

The Pirates' PA announcer said over the park's loudspeakers as a video of Miller in a Pirates jersey played, "Mac was a rapper, a singer, a producer and had a very bright future in the industry ahead of him."

"Locally, Mac is remembered as a hometown kid who sang about our city where his heart clearly remained."

"Our thoughts are with his parents, his grandmother and all of his family and friends who mourn his passing."

Mac was 26. RIP.

5/9/2017 6:07 AM PDT

Pittsburgh Pirates superstar Andrew McCutchen says his experience in Boston was simply different than Adam Jones -- telling TMZ Sports he was NOT showered with racial taunts. 

In fact, Andrew -- one of the 62 black players in the MLB -- says the fans at Fenway Park were actually really cool with him when the Pirates went to Beantown earlier this season.

McCutchen also commented on CC Sabathia's claim that black players "expect" racism in Boston -- saying it may be true for CC, but "everyone has different experiences."

Pittsburgh Pirates 3rd baseman Jung Ho Kang was arrested in South Korea Friday morning after officials say he fled the scene of a DUI crash around 2:45 AM. 

The 29-year-old allegedly crashed his car into a guardrail and bolted. Officials say his blood alcohol level was .084 ... over the legal limit ion South Korea, .05. 

Officials say they're also investigating allegations Kang asked a friend to lie and take the wrap as the driver of the crashed car. 

Pirates President Frank Coonelly issued a statement saying, "We are extremely disappointed in Jung Ho and in his decision process during this matter."

Coonelly, who was arrested for DUI in 2011, added ... "I know first-hand how foolish and dangerous it is to drive under the influence and am most thankful that, as we understand it, no one was injured."

MLB Star Andrew McCutchen Pirates Settle Team Dinners WITH CREDIT CARD ROULETTE!

1/27/2014 12:45 AM PST

Pittsburgh Pirates superstar Andrew McCutchen tells TMZ Sports ... just because he makes a fortune doesn't mean he pays for team dinners -- in fact, it often comes down to CREDIT CARD ROULETTE.

The reigning National League MVP (who signed a $51.5 mil contract in 2012) was in NY and told our photog he's happy to cover family 100% of the time -- and even rookies get a free meal every now and then -- but when it comes to his highly paid teammates, luck often dictates who gets stuck with the bill.

For the record, credit card roulette is super popular with athletes -- everyone gives their card to the server, who then picks one at random ... and that unlucky S.O.B. pays for the entire check, tip included.

Cutch, who recently proposed to his GF on the "Ellen" show, also admits the one downside of being engaged ... he often gets "stuck" watching his fiancee's favorite show -- the Kardashians.

BONUS CLIP -- Andrew, one of the nicest guys in baseball, also walked us through what goes on his head when he gets hit by a pitch ... it's pretty hilarious. Click here for that video.

Porn Star Busted My Sexy Unicorn Dance Screwed a Cop ... SORRY

7/18/2013 5:40 PM PDT

Posing with porn star Andy San Dimas -- while wearing a UNICORN HEAD -- has a Pittsburgh cop in huge trouble, but San Dimas claims the whole booty-shaking mess is a giant misunderstanding.

This all went down last weekend during a Pirates game at PNC Park, where Andy says she was doing her best to get on the jumbotron ... by shaking her ass in cut-off shorts, while wearing a unicorn head mask!

Awesome, right? Wrong ... because Andy says when an usher asked her to sit down, she tried to rile up the crowd by shouting back, "Oh, I'm sorry I was trying to have a good time at the f**king Pirates game!"

Not smart ... Andy was hauled off to the Pittsburgh PD station at the ballpark.

Andy says the cops were very friendly, and told her they had to boot her from the park -- but not before one officer asked to try on the mask.

Not smart again. That "unicorn cop" is now reportedly under investigation. It's unclear if it's the unicorn mask, the porn star -- or both -- that got him in trouble.

Either way, Andy says she hopes the cop doesn't get screwed ... since he was totally professional and "did nothing wrong."

Pittsburgh Pirates superstar Andrew McCutchen loves Honey Boo Boo. HE LOVES IT. And he's not afraid to admit it.

McCutchen -- who recently signed a 6-year, $51.5 MILLION contract with the Pirates -- was strollin' through L.A. Live yesterday ... at the same time a Carrie Underwood concert was going on.

McCutchen swears he wasn't at the Underwood show (though he says he is a fan) ... but fessed up about his obsession with the "Honey Boo Boo" show.

He even told us his favorite scene ... and it involves snot.
