An usher for the Pittsburgh Pirates is redefining workplace dedication. That may sound “ho hum” so read on…
99-year-old Phil Coyne, who has worked for the team since 1936, is retiring. Coyne assisted fans first at Forbes Field, then Three Rivers Stadium and then PNC Park. Coyne's only sabbatical was when he served in the military in World War Two. The Pirates will throw a party for the World War Two veteran on April 27th, Coyne's 100th birthday.
Coyne is the oldest usher in the major league, after working for 81 seasons. His reported reason for leaving is a fall before the start of the season.
