I just love to go to a live ballgame and before I'd left home I'd checked to see if the Pirates had a home game while we were there. They did! The we're playing their rival the Milwaukee Brewers so I asked Jeff to get us all tickets and I'd pay! Monday was the day and we were off to the park at 4:30 for a 6:30 start.

Take me out to the ballgame!
A little blurb about PNC park.
Driving through downtown Pittsburgh. Everything is so old and the building materials and architecture are so interesting.
Car parked and ready to head to the stadium.
We have our "big" beers!
We're early and not too many people are here yet.
The game hasn't started yet so we're still upstairs drinking beer.
First pitch...play ball!
We needed hot dogs and fries first!
Beautiful evening but really hot and humid.
The skyline is spectacular.
More people now and they are really enthusiastic.
The Pirates Andre McCutchen. A longtime player and a big favorite. He was traded away and now he's back.
Ava, Shane and Jeff.
Joy hamming it up!
Is it a home run...yes! A two run homer for the Pirates.
The family. Is Shane having fun..maybe😁
Rowdy Tellez used to be the DH for the Jays.
Raise the Jolly Roger the Pirates won 4 to 2!!
Joy in front of one of the many bronze baseball statues.
Back to the vehicle and Ava drove us all home! It was a great evening and so nice to have the whole family together. I even got to sing "Take me out to the ballgame" in the seventh inning stretch😁
