• If you're looking to take in the Pirates this weekend, remember to stay cool


    PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Pirates will host in-state rival the Philadelphia Phillies in a three-game series this weekend at PNC Park. But with temperatures forecast well into the 90s, fans are reminded to stay cool and hydrated while taking in a ball game.

    Pirates officials reminded fans they are allowed to bring in soft sided coolers measuring 16"x16"x18" with unopened bottles of water and ice. PNC Park also has water fountains throughout the facility. Ballpark officials said vendors, concession stands and portable beverage stations will all have bottle water throughout the weekend.

    • Jim Beam Left Field Lounge
    • Slice on Broadway
    • PNC Park Main Team Store and the Home Plate Store
    • Shaded areas on the main and upper concourse
    • Shaded areas under the left field bleachers and the Clemente Wall seating areas

    Fans with questions about keeping cool are encouraged to ask any usher or staff member.
