The Phillies are in Pittsburgh this weekend and that reminds me of when I went to PNC Park. My wife and I went to Pittsburgh for a weekend because she had been before and raved about the fireworks display. We jumped on StubHub and found good seats for very cheap, so off we went. As soon as we got to the stadium, I fell in love with it. There are fewer seats than Citizens Bank, which made it more intimate. The skyline view that we had made the stadium that much prettier and seeing colors other than red, white and blue was a welcome change.
Of all the ballparks I have been to, PNC Park was easily my favorite. Now, I will say that my ballpark visiting is extremely limited. This is where I have been:
- Fenway Park (overrated)
- Yankee Stadium II (really, really small in the concourses up top)
- Citi Field (everything felt so tall)
- Nationals Park (like a spaceship with each seat feeling so far away from the action)
- Camden Yards (love it)
- Joe Robbie Stadium (ugh....)
- Marlins Park (stadium tour only. Loved it)
Now that we are up to three children, my ballpark viewings will take a backseat for a while, but I thought about this and decided to bring it to the people: what is your favorite park you have visited and why?
Tell us which is your favorite ballpark you have visited. Bonus points for adding in pictures that you yourself took. The best one goes up to the main page. Happy writing!
