Baseball season begins
April is the start of a long journey of MLB baseball. The first opener was Sunday, April 2nd and the Pittsburgh Pirates home opener was Friday, April 7. The first pitch took place at 1:05 pm in a bit of snow. In 2007 and 2013, the day of the Pirates home opener called for snow, and this year the same. As the season starts, the weather can only get better.
Pirate games are always a fun event to attend for every age. One gets to enjoy great food, delicious ice cream and Dippin’ Dots, and enjoy an amazing view while watching the game of baseball. Junior Olivia Dewick loves to attend Pirate games. She holds season tickets in section 120 and takes along multiple of her softball buddies, including her friend, junior Mollie Alward who holds season tickets in the Lexus club.
“Pirate games are a great way for me and my teammates to bond. We love to sit here all day watching them,” said Dewick.
Alward attends several of these games along side of Dewick.
“Being in the city and seeing that view is a reason why our stadium is one of the greatest,” Alward stated.
They love to take pictures of the view of the city and explore after the games. Dewick thinks the Pirates have made some smart decisions and our lineup is pretty solid from top to bottom, but just a little weak in our pitching. Make your way downtown to PNC Park at least one time this summer and try Dewick’s favorite baseball food and famous Pittsburgh food, a Primanti’s sandwich.
