The Legacy

The Willie Stargell Story

Known for his monstrous home runs, Willie “Pops” Stargell crushed 475 career home runs during his 21 year baseball career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, whom he helped capture two World Series titles.

Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1988, he was an athlete, a gentleman, and a star on and off the field.

Remembering Willie


The Foundation

After Willie Stargell passed away in 2001 from renal failure, his widow, Margaret Weller-Stargell, wanted to make his dream of helping other dialysis patients come true.

Since its inception, the Willie Stargell Foundation has been awarding grants to organizations, medical centers, and transplant programs, making Willie’s dream a reality.
