The Filipinos, much like the Richmond Rebels, were one of the few successful USBL teams. The name "Filipinos" was in honor of Pitt's manager, Deacon Philipe, a former major league pitcher for the Louisville Colonels and Pittsburgh Pirates. The Filipinos were at the top of the standings with a 19-7 record at season's end. Pittsburgh was owned by Marshall Henderson and William McCullough. Big name players for the Pirates along with Philipe included Claude Ritchey, MLB infielder and outfielder for the Cincinnati Reds and the Pirates. Pittsburgh played at Exposition Park looking towards the Allegheny River. The next year in 1913, the Filipinos joined the Federal League, but were later renamed the Stogies the same year.
