• Ohio roadway dedicated 'in memory of' living Pirates great

    JEFFERSON COUNTY, Oh. - A sign mix-up has some people scratching their heads about the well-being of a former Pirates great.

    A  sign along Route 7 in Jefferson County, Ohio read "Bill Mazeroski Memorial Highway." But Mazeroski is alive, well and living in Florida.

    His childhood friends said he would get a laugh out of the mix-up.

    "They probably thought since all the well-known people roads are named after, most of them passed away. They probably thought Maz passed away," said friend Rich Bibbo.

    Ohio Transportation officials said they had a sign upgrade project on Route 7 and the sign has been replaced.
