Well guys, I just attended my first game since moving to Pittsburgh and I've gotta say, I love the Cell, but my god PNC is amazing. I know it's been said before, but I just wanted to further iterate how incredible this park is!

It's a crying shame that all those top picks the Pirates get for sucking so badly for so long go to waste and this team isn't better. Their pitching is pathetic (100 + pitches for ~4 innings for Snell last night???). Oh well...either way, PNC is amazing and hopefully they can get a better team in the future to get the crowd a bit more excited.

Im sort of a stadium junkie and from everything Ive read, PNC is probably the #1 baseball park in MLB. Its too bad that the Pirates are on their way to 16 straight losing seasons.

I donno, they might have a shot at .500. They are only 3 games under right now(good for last place in that horrible NL Central.). They have played very well against everybody but the cubs(2-9 i think). If they can keep this kind of production, i could see them finishing with 82 wins.

Having been to PNC, I rank it #2. AT&T in San Fransisco is still my #1. I know there've been countless stadium ranking threads, but I just wanted to throw my two cents in since I've had the pleasure of being at both.

Your top two choices are the same as mine. I don't like to rank all the parks, but if someone asks me to name my favorites, those are the first two I mention every time.

Reminds me of the article from The Onion about PNC Park threatening to move to another city if Pittsburgh doesn't build a better team.

PNC is simply an outstanding park. If you're looking for a new ballpark to go to, that is the one to go to.

PNC is definitely a beautiful ballpark. I went back in '02 and plan to return again (hopefully the next time the Sox are out there). :thumbsup:

Walking across the Clemente Bridge from DT just enhances an already wonderful ballpark experience. There's something to be said for parks built on the shoreline of a major waterway. Pittsburgh really did it right this time.

Why wait until then I think the Sox play them every year now. At least it seems that way.

PNC is amazing. That and AT&T are my favorite parks in baseball.
