The Scouting Report
Nearly one-third of the way through the 2012 season, the Pirates have dug their cleats into the dirt and garnered a 25–25 record through the first two months, including a 16–11 mark at home, propelling them to third place in the NL Central, just three games back of the first-place Cincinnati Reds. Star centerfielder Andrew McCutchen leads the divisional mutiny, posting a .331 batting average and making diving catches thanks to the wind lifting under his signature dreadlocks. Veteran pitchers Erik Bedard and A.J. Burnett anchor a staff that includes emerging ace James McDonald, who sits among the NL's top hurlers with 63 strikeouts and a tidy 2.20 ERA.
Special promotions and events add an extra level of excitement to the upcoming games, including a T-shirt giveaway on June 8 and Kids Day on June 10, when children 14 and younger can run the bases after the game to collect the wooden nickels that fell out of players' pockets.
In the Pittsburgh Alleghenies' first National League game in 1887, the rag-tag squad amassed six runs against the mighty Chicago White Stockings, establishing the team as a force to be reckoned with for decades to come. Today, through more than 130 years, five World Series titles, and four previous stadiums, the Alleghenies—now the Pirates—make their home at PNC Park, where pop flies soar amid views of the Clemente Bridge and Steel City skyline sprawling in the background. Located only 443 feet away—or, by official MLB measurements, 807.3 half-eaten hot dogs—the Allegheny River waits for home runs to splash down after sailing over the right-field wall, which stands at 21 feet high in honor of legendary Pirate Roberto Clemente. Off the field, the stone archways lining the entry-level façade tip their cap to the club's former longtime home, Forbes Field, and an outdoor terrace and riverwalk cool down fans enjoying the game on warm summer nights.
