About PNC Park Field

PNC Park is the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates MLB team. It is located on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. And it is the fifth home for the franchise in its history.

It first opened to the public during the 2001 MLB season after the Pirates previous home, Three Rivers Stadium, was demolished by controlled implosion. The new stadium actually stands just east of the old one along the Allegheny River and features a gorgeous view of the Downtown Pittsburgh skyline. It also features a lush natural grass playing field and has space for 38.747 fans for baseball events.

Plans to build PNC Park actually started back in 1991, but were delayed for five years. It was funded with Heinz Field and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center and was constructed over 24 months, which is faster than most modern stadiums. It’s design can be described as “retro-classic” as it was modeled after Pittsburgh’s Forbes Field. But it still has it’s own unique features, including the use of limestone in the building’s facade.

The park also features a riverside concourse, an extensive out-of-town scoreboard, and a host of local eateries for that fine Pittsburgh game day dining. The stadium also tributes former Pirate Roberto Clemente with honors including renaming the Sixth Street Bridge in his honor.

But PNC Park isn’t just for baseball. As it also plays host other sporting events and concerts including the 2006 mLB All-Star Game.

PNC Park is considered one of America’s greatest ballparks due to its location, design, and the excellent angles and sightlines fans have from all seats in the house.

Baseball Team Summary

With over 100 years of play in the books, it was bound to happen that the Pirates would earn a few rivalries to their names. And this is one of the hottest rivalries that Pirates fans look forward to every season.

Phillies–Pirates rivalry

This rivalry is so intense that it’s considered one of the best rivalries in the National Leagues until 1994. It began way back in 1887 when the Pirates entered the National League, four years after the Phillies.

The two teams remained together even after the National League split into two divisions in 1969. During the periods of two-division play, the two rivals won the two highest numbers of division championships, almost exclusively as NL East Champions in the 1970s and in the early 1990s. The Pirates won nine, and the Phillies won six, which together is 15 championships or, over half of the 25 NL East championships of that era.

When the Pirates moved to the National League Central in 1994, things cooled off as the teams faced each other in only two series per year. Many fans however, especially older ones, keep the rivalry and dislike hot.


It’s not a surprise that the Pittsburgh Pirates have fielded several Hall of Fame coaches and players over its many years in professional competition. Here’s a list of the players and coaches who have been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum who have been involved with the Pirates during their careers.
