History
PNC Park is the first ballpark with a two-deck design to be built in the United States since Milwaukee's County Stadium was completed in 1953. Because of its intimate design, the highest seat will be just 88 feet from the field, giving every fan in the park an ideal sight line. PNC Park serves as the fifth home of the Pittsburgh Pirates since their inception in 1887. The total cost of the ballpark was $216 million.

Playing field
The irregularly shaped natural grass field measures 325 feet down the left-field foul pole, 389 through the left-field power alley and reaches its greatest distance of 410 at a nook in left-center field.The outfield wall rises up to 21 feet behind right field (in honor of the Pirates legendary right fielder #21, Roberto Clemente) and drops down to just six feet in front of the left-field bleachers. From home plate to the Allegheny River is 443 feet, 4 inches.
