3 days after inaugurating the new Brewers™ home field in Milwaukee, the Cincinnati Reds™ found themselves doing the honors again at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. The date is Monday, April 9, the time is 1:35, and as in Milwaukee, Barry Larkin is the first batter for this historic game.
Product FeaturesAfter 31 seasons in Three Rivers Stadium™, the Pirates® now have their own home - not shared with football - with a beautiful view of downtown Pittsburgh in the distance, and a pedestrian bridge named for Roberto Clemente. This baseball crazy city is ready for a new era of Pirates baseball. Sadly, this is also the day that Willie Stargell has passed away, creating a pall around the festivities. But for 36,954 fans, it is a time to come together to remember "Pops" in the way he would have wanted - sharing a Pirates game together. Larkin is facing Todd Ritchie. The Pirates catcher, arguably their best player, is Jason Kendall. The home plate umpire is Bill Welke. For the record, Ritchie is surrounded by Kevin Young at first, Pat Meares at second, Jack Wilson at short and Aramis Ramirez at third. The outfield, left to right, features Brian Giles, Adrian Brown and Derek Bell. The Reds scored twice in the first and went on to win 8-2, with the Reds' Sean Casey hitting the first homer in the new park.
