is located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and is the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates. PNC Park only seats 38,496 people for baseball, which as of 2008 is the second-smallest capacity of any Major League stadium.
Funded along with Heinz Field and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, PNC Park stands along the Allegheny River, on the North Shore of Pittsburgh with a view of Downtown Pittsburgh. Built in the style of “classic” stadiums, such as Boston’s Fenway Park, PNC Park also introduced unique features, such as the use of limestone in the building’s facade. The park also features a riverside concourse, steel truss work, an extensive out-of-town scoreboard, and many local eateries. Constructed faster than most modern stadiums, PNC Park was built in a 24-month span.
Since it’s completion in 2001, PNC Park has been considered to be one of the best baseball stadiums in the country. It has the third-cheapest average ticket prices of any MLB stadium and has helped attract businesses to the surrounding area, in spite of the fact that the Pirates have not had a winning season since they moved to the stadium. PNC Park hosted the 2006 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, the fifth MLB All-Star Game held in Pittsburgh.
Capacity: 38,496 (Slightly higher with Standing Room)
