PNC Park

PNC Park is a ballpark located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates of Major League Baseball (MLB). The ballpark opened during the 2001 season and was built in the "retro-classic" style modelled after past venues like Pittsburgh's Forbes Field, PNC Park also introduced unique features, such as the use of limestone in the building's facade. PNC Park also features a riverside concourse, steel truss work, an extensive out-of-town scoreboard, and local eateries. Several tributes to former Pirate Roberto Clemente were incorporated into the ballpark, which included renaming the Sixth Street Bridge behind it in his honour. During its opening season, PNC Park's seating capacity of 38,496 was the second-smallest of any major league stadium, but it now holds 38,362 which is sixth smallest amongst MLB stadiums. PNC Park is concurred to be one of the nicest and fan friendly ballparks in all of baseball. A 2010 unranked list of "America's 7 Best Ballparks" published by ABC News noted that PNC Park "combines the best features of yesterday's ballparks—rhythmic archways, steel truss work and a natural grass playing field—with the latest in fan and player amenities and comfort."
