My first sports memory was of Bill Mazeroski and "the homer." So, being able to stand by the outfield wall of this historic, magical field was an awesome experience. It doesn't look like much nowadays, but if grew up as a Pirate fan (an especially...More

This is right along the road next to a really cool fountain. My boyfriend wanted to stop by to take a look. He played a video clip of the home run from online while standing there which really help put it in context.

Glad to see that they kept homeplate and some of the outfield wall after the demo of Forbes Field. It would be a shame to not maintain the history. In the heart of campus, so definitely worth taking a minute or two to check it...More

We actually biked over here and parking was not a problem. The old wall and commemorative plaque is right in the middle of the University of Pittsburgh. Only about 100 ft. Of the left field wall remains and I am not sure that the footage...More

What can you say about a wall. Not much. But, when I was a student and Carnegie Tech, I had the opportunity to go to a ball game or two. I recall that late in the game, they would let anyone come in so I...More

The place where old field once stood, not much other than that but at least it's something to remember
