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.

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

If you can remember trying to tune in KDKA in the middle of the evening, straining to hear the announcers through the static, then you have to go. There isn't much left here on the Pitt campus. Part of an outfield wall. But it's enough...More
