The 1935 Pittsburgh Pirates season was a season in American baseball which involved the Pirates finishing fourth in the National League.

The roster featured four future Hall of Famers: player-manager Pie Traynor, shortstop Arky Vaughan, center fielder Lloyd Waner, and right fielder Paul Waner.

Vaughan hit .385 on his way to being named the NL's Most Valuable Player by The Sporting News. It is considered the best offensive season ever by a shortstop other than Honus Wagner.[1]
