One of the best things to do on a beautiful spring or summer day in Pittsburgh is to head down to PNC Park to catch a Pittsburgh Pirate baseball game. Sure, it’s been 20 years since the Pirates were able to finish above .500, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t go to the ballpark and enjoy it with friends and family. This past Saturday I did just that and it was a pretty good time. The Pirates even won, beating the Cincinnati Reds on two homeruns, with one ending up in Allegheny River. Today’s shot are a collection from the game. Hope you enjoy!
