The Pittsburgh Post Gazette remembers Studs Terkel:
"When I was 13, I thought Pittsburgh was the intellectual capital of America," he said in his '94 appearance.. . .Did you ever hear of Lee Meadows? He was the first major leaguer to wear glasses, and he pitched for the Pittsburgh Pirates. And the second major leaguer to wear glasses was Carmen Hill. Guess who he pitched for? The Pittsburgh Pirates. In those days, anybody who wore glasses was an intellectual."
