PNC Park: San Diego vs. Pittsburgh
I’m not saying a word about the game itself.
Crazy John Wray is a man whose heart was obviously broken when they tore Forbes Field down but has found a fabulous way to relive a ton of memories by giving tours of its remains. He even does a little impression of Yogi Berra bailing on an infamous home run… Every year on October 13th people gather by the plaque and listen to a replay of the entire game; some pray that it won’t rain!
I took a cable car up to a view point and found “Redbeards”, a very civilized establishment serving the local “Iron City Beer” and Primanti Bros was the fare of choice. Good times.
One of the reasons I took this tour was to see this particular park. I was not disappointed. It’s absolutely gorgeous. The skyline looks like a cardboard cutout and reminds me of the NY,NY Casino in Las Vegas. Check out the pics…
