The Pirates played the Phillies yesterday and they won 1-0.

But here are 5 things I’ll remember most about being at that game: 

1 – My son got to take the field (along with other kids in his baseball league) and it was such a wonderful experience. He got to meet the shortstop, Mpho’ Gift Ngoepe. I got lots of great pics of him on the field but the one in the featured photo above is a favorite because it reminds me that all the professional players out there started out as young kids (like my son in the photo below) who simply loved to play the game. 


2 – The elementary kids from a local school sang the National Anthem and they did an AMAZING job! 


3 – Pizza Penny won the pierogi race and I don’t really like Pizza Penny. No offense to her, but I don’t know anyone who eats pizza pierogies.    

4 – It rained but we were under cover, literally in the very last row you could possibly sit in up top. With a view overlooking the whole park, the river and the skyline – I was reminded that there’s not really a bad seat in PNC Park to see a game.


5 – Just across the river at PPG Paints Arena, the Pens were crushing the Sens. Good day for Pittsburgh sports!
