Boasting a rich history highlighted by five World Series championships, the Pittsburgh Pirates have entertained fans with thrilling athleticism and mesmerizing shadow puppets since the team’s inception in 1887, 10 years before bats were invented. Visitors will be able to soak in the scenic and intimate confines of the nine-year-old PNC Park, which showcases striking riverside views and a classic stadium design. The downtown skyline, yellow-painted Roberto Clemente Bridge, and occasional Waldo sightings all create picturesque views that can be enjoyed from any of the stadium’s 38,362 seats. This year, the Pirates are led by center-fielder Andrew McCutchen, who owned a .323 batting average with 12 stolen bases after 43 games, as well as left-handed hurler Zach Duke, who struck out 36 batters while maintaining a 4.47 ERA after his first 10 starts.
Attending a baseball game is more American than drive-through burgers wrapped in a pair of blue jeans or referring to every new locale one visits as “India.” Enjoy a fun-filled evening or afternoon of baseballing from several comfy seats, as opposed to a hot-air balloon or hazardous left-field bunkers, with today's Groupon to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Note on Pirates.com fees: You'll get the same percentage off the convenience charge, but you'll still need to pay the full processing fee, the optional printing-at-home fee, and tax. Ain't no discounts on tax.
Reviews of the Pittsburgh Pirates can be heard on local radio stations, so here are some reviews of PNC Park via Ballparksofbaseball.com:
- For those of you who love baseball, this is a park to see. I thought Camden Yards was fantastic, but I think this one edges them out (just a bit). – Maureen O.
- Do yourself a favor when visiting PNC Park and walk around during a game. There are so many unique and wonderful vantage points, that you may not even want to go back to your seat. – Frankie P.
- The Pirates are lucky to have such a great place to play! – Chris Nicher

About Pittsburgh Pirates
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.
