A vital battle during the Seven Years War that helped ensure Pittsburgh as a settlement.

PNC Parkpittsburgh-pirates

This ballpark is home to the Pittsburgh Pirates of the NL Central division. This stadium is located on the Allegheny River near where the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers form into the Ohio River. What makes this stadium special is that you can kayak the river hoping that a homer gets launched into the river. Although, very few people have launched the ball the 440+ feet needed to reach the river. But hey it could happen!
