I know I’ve posted about it before, but PNC Park is arguably the best baseball park in the United States, and probably the world. This is shot from across the Allegheny River. There are no bad seats. It’s affordable. Parking across the river and walking the Roberto Clemente Bridge past all of the street vendors and the dude who knows four licks on the saxophone on your way to the game — it’s awesome. The Pirates aren’t great this year, but that’s okay.
I think that the resurgence of baseball has less to do with the rule changes and getting out of the PED and strike funk of the 90s, and more to do with the fact that it fits the way that people want to experience an event now. The pace of baseball is slow, and the times you have to really pay attention become very clear by the surrounding circumstances. It means that you can go to a game and for the most part pay partial attention to what’s going on while you send Snaps to your friends and goof around. If things get serious, you can focus for a few minutes, then it’s back to Twitter. Attending a major league baseball game fully supports the digital lifestyle.
