Photos from Pittsburgh

Right about now, I should be boarding a plane in Baltimore to come back home. If all went according to plan, I saw the Orioles play the Red Sox last night at Camden…of course, things don’t always go according to plan, so I’ll let you know if plans changed.

Earlier this year, my family and I drove through Pittsburgh on the way to visit family, and stopped to see the Reds play the Pirates at PNC Park. We only saw a few batters because of the rain, but I had fun visiting the park for the first time. The Pirates have some great statues outside the park, including the legendary Honus Wagner right out front…

“Pops” (Willie Stargell) is located on the third base side of PNC…

Roberto Clemente (and the bridge named after him) are out near left field…

There is also a bridge named after artist Andy Warhol, parallel to the Clemente bridge, but I didn’t get a photo of it. It’s basically the same bridge, and I didn’t see any signs calling them Clemente or Warhol. I wanted to go to the Warhol Museum, but it was closed the day we were in town.

Outside the right field side of the park is a statue of Hall of Famer Bill Mazeroski

There is also a street named after Maz, and since we were just walking around for a few hours before the game, I snapped a shot of the street sign…

It really shouldn’t have taken more than two months to write this post.

  1. Nice shots. I especially like the Honus Wagner with the ballpark name in the background. I’ve never been there but the park looks great on TV.
