Stadium Overview
  Built in 2001, it seems PNC Park was designed specifically to counter everything that was wrong with its predecessor. Three Rivers Stadium had a boring, cookie-cutter layout and its bowl shape blocked any view of the scenery for which it was named. In contrast, PNC features an open-air layout with impressive views of the Pittsburgh skyline and Roberto Clemente Bridge, which serves as the main focal point beyond the center field wall.

  On the field, PNC plays just as interesting as its setting with the asymmetrical layout lending itself to three distinct parts. While the left side plays deeper than any active MLB venue, PNC features generous CF dimensions as it measures just 399 feet straight-away. In right, the 21-foot tall fence protects what would otherwise be a prime HR spot down the line. Ballpark Pak rates PNC the #4 venue for doubles and triples, which can be attributed to the shallow, taller-than-average fences comprising two-thirds of the outfield perimeter.

  For a fully outdoor venue, PNC Park is only moderately variable from day to day. It isn't particularly receptive to wind, which doesn’t tend to blow very fast (6 mph average). Forecasted wind speed rarely eclipses 12 mph and is usually in the single digits. Temperature is also fairly consistent as 90-degree days are rare and nearly 40% of games are played in the 70s.

  A notable feature of PNC Park is that fly balls tend to carry a bit farther than average. Pittsburgh sits 743 feet above sea level (6th highest in MLB), and the wind blows out (53%) more often than it blows in (22%).
