I'm going to be in town Thursday and want to go check out a game. I've been to PNC a couple times in the past and it really is my favorite of the 15 or so MLB parks I've been to.

I was last there two years ago and remember seeing scalpers on the street that appeared to have ticket resale licenses selling tickets at reasonable prices, but I was wondering if anyone on this board had any words of wisdom on how to go about finding a really good single ticket at a good price.

Thanks for any insight you can provide!

I doubt you will have any problem getting good seats for a week night game. There will be lucky to be 15-17,000 fans in attendance.

You might want to consider the All You Can Eat section. The tickets are $35.00 att the window. Plenty of food choices and soft drinks but no beer. Maybe they are also scalped.

Actually, I think they are $40 at the window, $35 if purchased in advance. Really though, they are $17 seats (and the worst section of seats in that pric category), so unless you are going to eat $25 worth of food, not including beer, its not really worth it. I would, however, love to have those seats during a doubleheader.

Honestly, for a weekday game, if you get there early and wander around by the ticket window, you are likely to find someone giving away an extra seat. Even if it is a bad seat, just sit in the bleachers or stand on the rotunda. Otherwise, wait until just before game time. Scalpers drastically slash prices after 7.

Thanks for all of the input, I really appreciate it...one more question...how many rows of Dugout Box and Lexus Box seating are there before the Infield Box seats start?

I would say maybe 10 rows. Inexact estimate.
