Follow Me to Forbes Field Vintage Sign

Saw this sign on the back wall behind the Cobra Kings band at Excuses on the South Side Friday night. The kitchen door is on the right, the spice rack a blur.

Some of you may know how Baseball in October is a big thrill in the city of Pittsburgh right now, after twenty one years without a winning season we have one now…. and then some!

Another game against the St. Louis Cardinals tomorrow afternoon. On our home field of PNC Park. Everyone is hoisting the Jolly Roger flags and cheering them on.

Forbes Field Forever is a website which maintains the memories although the actual field is no longer there, but the brick wall with the painted distance numerals is still in Oakland, covered with some ivy. Home plate in a U of Pitt building floor, covered with plexiglass for all to see. GO BUCS!

    • Fifth game in St Louis on Wed. Tough loss today at home 2-1. but yes Pittsburgh is crazy for the Pirates. Twenty one years of losing seasons is a long time

  3. This is a fantastic picture. I bet you could make prints of it and sell enough to build a small fortune. :)
