82-70, 2nd in NL Central
PNC Park is the first ballpark with a two-deck design to be built in the United States since Milwaukee's County Stadium was completed in 1953. The highest seat in the stadium is but 88 feet from the field; it's all part of an intimate layout to provide optimal sight lines. PNC Park serves as the fifth home of the Pittsburgh Pirates since their inception in 1887. The total cost of the ballpark was $262 million. The outfield wall rises up to 21 feet behind right field (in honor of the Pirates legendary right fielder Roberto Clemente, who wore jersey 21) and drops down to just six feet in front of the left-field bleachers. From home plate to the Allegheny River is 443 feet, 4 inches.
Park your car across the river and join other fans in walking across the Roberto Clemente Bridge to the game. Once inside, grab an Iron City beer and enjoy views of the Pittsburgh skyline and some of those prominent bridges. Sadly, the Pirates are perennial losers now, but that just makes it easier for fans of opposing teams to invade.
