Concessions used to be better a few years ago. Recently, PNC Field eliminated some good items like the "Bloomin Onion" and Pierogies, when they were takenover by Legends Hospitality. A "cut" (slice) of pizza magically shrunk in half from one year to the next. They often can't keep up with the demand for pretzels throughout the game and are sometimes out of them. PNC Field used to have some of the best concessions in the minors and now it has gone totally downhill.
The size the pizza used to be until they cut it in half the following year and charged the same price for it.
No longer available :(
Ramps or stairs leading to upper level
Stadium Club restaurant overlooks the field.
All-You-Can-Eat seating plan-Championship Plan is offered.
The field is not visible from the concession stands.
The stadium has more of a “major league” feel to it, as far as the stadium design goes. The stadium was originally designed to match Veterans Stadium, but now that the Yankees are the affiliate, the turf was replaced with natural grass.
Kids zone play area
The stadium is nestled in the Montage Mountain Ski resort area. Therefore, the centerfield view out of the stadium is very scenic.
For the most part, baseball is the main focus (as it should be).
As far as sound effects, the stadium played the usual baseball type music. There were some creative in-between innings contests led by The Pinstripe Patrol. The mascot's name is "Champ".
The stadium is very clean. Ushers and stadium staff are easily accessible and friendly. If you are looking for a stress free, relaxing environment to watch baseball, PNC Field is the place to go.
Free programs are given out at the gate on your way in to the ballpark.
