Good morning everyone and happy Friday! For today’s shots we will head to PNC Park on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates. A few days ago I posted a series of images from outside the stadium. In the two days after that I actually went to both Pirates games, the first time in a very long time that I’ve been to back to back games. Although they lost both of them by scores of 3-2 and 3-1 respectively (both to New York Mets), it was a good time and of course I had my camera to capture some shots. I didn’t take too many shots on Tuesday, as we were in a suite and I didn’t have my 70-200 with me. On Wednesday however, we were at field level and I had my full arsenal of lenses, so I made the most of it! Hope you enjoy! The first shot above was taken on Tuesday evening from the Bow Tie bar, the new Budweiser Bar located in right field. It has a great view of the city!
Starting pitcher Charlie Morton delivers a pitch
I can just hear Men at Work singing “We can dance if we want to..” as David Wright gets out of the way of the pitch (which you can see just in front of home plate)
The view from our seats
Of course there was some in game entertainment
Second basement Neil Walker goes down swinging in the ninth…
Just like All Star Andrew McCutcheon did in the eighth
It wouldn’t be a Pirates’ game without the Pierogies! This race was won by Oliver Onion
Another shot of second basemen Neil Walker grounding out early in the game
Thanks for stopping by today folks! I hope that all of you in the States who are celebrating have a great holiday weekend!
