• Attendance trends after 23 games at PNC Park

    All of the attendance talk last week piqued my curiosity. I won't debate the reasons why fans stay away from PNC Park, or why you should or shouldn't attend more games. I won't say what needs to happen for the Pirates to draw better crowds, either. I only wanted to see what...

  • Game #43 vs. Arizona
