It has been 18 months since the Pittsburgh Pirates have welcomed fans into PNC Park but that is set to change
During Tuesday’s Pittsburgh Pirates and Toronto Blue Jays Spring Training game Pirate fans got some pretty big news. To be honest, this news made me shed a few tears. Per Jason Mackey on his Twitter account, the Pittsburgh Pirates are preparing to welcome fans back to PNC Park next month.
I know, I know I’m waiting for the comments like, “are you sure they even have that many fans?!” But save the jokes. All that matters is the Pittsburgh Pirates are preparing to welcome fans back to the best ballpark in America.
Just thinking about all of the hard times and time spent away from loved ones due to the pandemic it’s nice to finally have some sort of normalcy in my life again. Countless memories are made with your loved ones, and even more, are made when they take place at a sporting event. I can remember the last time I was at PNC, and it was two years ago, and dammit, waiting that long will never happen again!
This news from the Pirates came after Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf made changes to both indoor and outdoor occupancy limits on Monday.
He then went on to say not long after that, “There is light at the end of the tunnel. COVID-19 cases are on the decline, and more are being vaccinated. Thank you for wearing masks, keeping your distance, planning for vaccines, and doing whatever it takes to slow the spread of COVID. Your actions are making a difference.”
So maybe, just maybe, if the last Tweet I showed you is any indication, we could see even more fans in the stands later on in the season. I know many people will say, “who the hell cares it’s the Pirates.” Yeah, I know, but good lord, can’t you just let a good thing happen without complaining just once?! Anyways I hope to see all of you there at PNC rooting like one should, with a beer in one hand and a glove in the other.
