#30Fieldsin30Days: PNC Park

What's more perfect than a day at the ballpark? 30 perfect days at 30 ballparks. 30 Fields in 30 Days is here to show off the can't-miss spots at each and every Major League stadium. Join us, then plan out an unforgettable day at your favorite park.
Ask any baseball fan who has visited Major League parks throughout the country to name his or her favorite. PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, will almost definitely be on the short list.
Though it has only been in existence since 2001, PNC Park has quickly found its way to the tip of every baseball fan's tongue. Thanks to an intimate setting with slightly more than 38,000 seats (the highest seat is just 88 feet from the field), fans can take in a game while looking out at postcard-worthy scenery.
-The view: After arriving at PNC by walking - yes, walking - the Roberto Clemente Bridge, fans enjoy a breathtaking view of the Allegheny River just over the right-field wall. It has become one of the signature sights in baseball. A monster home run can even make it into the water from a hitter with prodigious power.
-Fireworks: Fans adore special shows put on by Zambelli Fireworks, a Pittsburgh-based company known for elaborate productions that make spectators want to stay in their seats long after the final out. Fireworks games are among the most popular ticket promotions the Pirates offer.
