Over the years I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to various yards throughout my Stadium Journey quest. Putting personal bias aside, AT&T Park and PNC Park are no doubt two of the most scenic yards I have ventured to. So, in Drei’s book, how do they match up ?
Both yards are very intimate in size. Both have scenic backdrops. Both have a sense of charm that are reflect the local culture….

In and around PNC Park, Sept 2005…
These two yards really do rank highly in my ballpark journey’s. Outside The Ravine, if I had to choose which yard get’s the edge for that top spot in Drei’s book of ballpark’s traveled ? Hmm ? I think i’m gonna have to go with a tie-breaker on this one. Who get’s the tie-breaker ?
Slight edge to PNC Park. Two factors. The first was a hard one. Skyline or water ? At night, the Pittsburgh skyline, accented with the Roberto Clemente Bridge, makes for a more picturesque backdrop especially at night. The second factor ? Let’s just say this… A Dodger fan just wrote this piece….
Kickin’ it with The Pirate Parrot. Hey, 2 straight October’s at PNC Park for you !!!
