PNC Park is one of baseball’s treasures, but watching the Pirates will make fans say arrrrgh.
What makes this stadium unique?
PNC Park is considered by many to be the best in baseball with its intimate seating and breathtaking views. The Pittsburgh skyline, Roberto Clemente Bridge, and rivers are the highlighted backdrop. The bridge is closed to vehicular traffic on game days so fans can walk across to the stadium. Roberto Clemente is honored in many ways including a statue along with Honus Wagner outside the main entrance and the right field wall is 21 feet tall to commemorate his number. Fans can learn the proud history of the Negro Leagues in Highmark Legacy Square, located just inside the Left Field Gate. Underneath the scoreboard is The Hall of Fame Club, a restaurant open to all fans. Live music performances are played here after select games. Hold on to your Pirates’ home run ball. Guests have the option to get the ball signed by the Pirate who hit it, making the perfect souvenir!
