Louis Bierbauer, B. 1830, had a son, Louis Henry Bierbauer, who became a famous baseball payer for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was famous because he is one of a handful of players to hit 4 home runs in the same game, and because the Pittsburgh team stole him from the Philadelphia Athletics - AND from then on became known as the Pittsburgh "Pirates."
