PITTSBURGH — This story originally appeared on pittsburghbaseballnow.com.

Whether you’re in the stands at PNC Park or watching on television, the Pittsburgh Pirates evening home games will be starting at a new time next season.

Instead of games being played at different times depending on the month, the Pirates have shifted to a start time of 6:40 p.m. ET for their evening games in Pittsburgh. Previously, games either began at 6:35 p.m. or 7:05 p.m.

Additionally, Saturday home games will start at 4:05 p.m. ET prior to the All-Star break. After the Pirates return home from the Midsummer Classic, Saturday home games will begin at 6:40 p.m. ET. The only Saturday game not slotted at either of those times is an Aug. 17 matchup with the Seattle Mariners.
