Propelled by gale-force pitches, powerful bat-swings, and the excitement of competing for a lead in the National League Central standings, the Pittsburgh Pirates chase dreams of winning a sixth World Series championship. Fans can relax in a choice of seats, enjoying bird's-eye views of the field from Pittsburgh baseball club seats and catching homered donut holes in outfield box seats. This season, center fielder Andrew McCutchen leads the team’s batting stats, logging 14 home runs and 59 RBIs over 350 at-bats. Southpaw Paul Maholm shepherds the pitching staff toward victory, fanning 78 batters with his matador cloak and maintaining a 3.06 ERA over 126.2 innings.

With no seat more than 88 feet from the field, guests can witness game-changing catches and catcher's box Twister games from any of the stadium's 38,362 seats.

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.
