Seat view from section 1 at PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates

I've sat here once. It's the furthest Baseline Box from the field but a good place to sit nonetheless. You don't get the view of the Pittsburgh skyline from these seats that a lot of fans get during the game but you will have plenty of chances to take pictures of it, take the River Walk, etc. You're there to watch baseball!

The foul territory is kind of small in front of these seats; practically non existent so it will feel like you're sitting on the field which is awesome. The right side wall is also really small so if the right fielders chase a foul ball into these seats, remember not to interfere! Each row is pretty wide so we were able to get in and out pretty easily without having to ask our neighboring fans to stand. Section 1 is a very small section so a lot of fans will like these seats in that respect.

There is so much that's special about this place whether it be the Pierogi race, the sounds of the organ, riding the escalator up to the main level, the statues of Honus Wagner, Roberto Clemente and Willie Stargell or riding the "Gateway Clipper" to the ballpark - PNC Park is just a little bit better than all of the other MLB ballparks. It has everything.

The food, on the other hand, is good, not great. Primanti Brothers is excellent but we usually eat at Jerome Bettis Grille or Mullen's before the game. I highly recommend those establishments!

sat in this section for a reds game this past season. was a day game on sunday, i got fried (sunburnt). Right next to garrett jones. rows are lettered a thru m, small section which is the main appeal of sitting here as well as the proximity to the field. Great view of the jumbotron in left center. you will enjoy these seats.
