Welcome to PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and one of the most beautiful and intimate ballparks in Major League Baseball.

PNC Park has five entrances, including this homeplate entrance located at the corner of General Robinson Street and Mazeroski Way. The dominating Home Plate Rotunda, a continuous ramp from street level up to each seating level, is adorned with actual newspaper headlines celebrating the best moments in Pirates history.
Ceremonial groundbreaking for PNC Park took place on April 7, 1999 and opening day took place just two years later on April 9, 2001 with a sellout crowd of 36,954. It is named PNC Park after PNC Bank, who paid in excess of $30 million for the naming rights.
