  Old Forbes Field Wall
by VeronicaG

This section of wall is all that remains of Pittsburgh's Forbes Field--Home of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Forbes Field was the first baseball stadium built in the United States in 1909. It closed in 1970 when the Three Rivers Stadium was built. Three Rivers Stadium was eventually imploded, with PNC Park replacing it in 2001.

This wall sits in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh, near the Carnegie Library and University of Pittsburgh's Mervis Hall and Wesley Posvar Hall.

Interesting Fact : The Pittsburgh Pirates played in the first world series in 1903 against the Boston Pilgrims.
