MY TAKE ON THE PARK

Three Rivers Stadium .. From 3rd base side

I ONLY ATTENDED ONE GAME AT THREE RIVERS, THE ONE GAME WHICH HAPPENED TO BE THE LONGEST GAME IN THREE RIVER STADIUM'S HISTORY.

I REMEMBER EVERYONE FROM THE TICKET TAKERS TO THE USHERS TO THE PIRATE FANS BEING VERY NICE.

I HAD A LONG WALK TO THE GAME, NOT BECAUSE THE PIRATES WERE PLAYING BUT BECAUSE THERE WAS A REGATTA GOING ON, THOSE THINGS DRAW HUGE CROWDS IN THE THREE RIVERS AREA.
I WILL SAY THAT IT WAS A COOKIE CUTTER THAT REALLY MADE NO IMPACT ON ME, EXCEPT FOR THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE AND THE SURPRISE THAT THE STEEL CITY WAS CLEAN AND CLEAR.

OF THE 27 MAJOR LEAGUE PARKS I'VE VISITED I RATE THIS ONE 24th, AHEAD OF OLYMPIC STADIUM BUT BEHIND RIVERFRONT.
