These two Pirates fans may have the best seats in all of baseball
With the Pirates on the verge of their first winning season in 19 years and still in the postseason hunt, Pittsburgh fans have been filling PNC's once-empty blue seats with record attendance numbers. In fact, the organization is already nearing its season goal of 2,436,140.
Seventeen-year-old Max Herz and his father Ken may have some of the best seats in the house. The pair have been season-ticket holders since 2008, when the Pirates were not as successful and ticket prices were low. Due to the team's recent success, their seats just behind the home dugout are now considered a steal at just $37.50 per game.
For Max, a junior at a nearby high school, it has been an especially fun season.
“It's so much better this year that the games are meaningful and a lot of them are must-win situations,” Max said. "Not only do I get to see some of my favorite ballplayers from other teams, but I also get to enjoy the recent success the team is having for the first time in my life."
