An open-air baseball stadium built on the North Shore of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, PNC Park primarily serves as home to Major League Baseball’s Pittsburgh Pirates.
It’s the fifth stadium that the Pittsburgh Pirates have called home in Pittsburgh since arriving in the city.
The stadium was designed in a similar old-style to that of Orioles Park at Camden Yards, like so many other parks have tried to do so. Many consider Pittsburgh’s PNC Park to be one of the few to pull it off as well as the Baltimore Orioles’ home stadium.
